Starting the Baby-Proofing
Our house is so not baby-proof. We have a long way to go, but luckily Lil c is not moving around too much just yet. He is very aware of his surroundings though, and likes to touch everything. EVERYthing - so we have to be careful. I do love how he's discovering the world around him, especially all the little things that make up our home. I have to admit, i'm letting him touch a lot - texture is such a wonderful thing!
Our living room and dining both, where we happen to spend most of our time, are not very baby friendly with all the knick knacks and breakables, let alone things that can hurt him. So, i'll be checking through it all soon, but to be frank, i don't think we'll change a lot or get rid of lot because i like children living in a real family space, instead of turning rooms into a daycare scene. Of course, we'll get rid of things that will hurt him, for now.
Like, for instance, we've already stashed our alcohol. We used to love having it out for us to have easy access to (we're not really lushes, i swear!), and to be good hosts. But we got the coolest cabinet to do it, and we bought it as soon as we saw it because it's so cool. Don't you agree? I love the hidden top that opens up, oh so gently, to a ready to serve bar. We just need to find bottles and/or glasses that are small enough for those wee holes! Plus, c won't be able to figure out how to open that top part for a long time. And the bottle has a key. Notice the fancy copper lining on the right side? Pretty cool, if you ask me! We just have to finish those bottles on top soon, as they don't fit anywhere. Good thing it's the holidays!
