Gated Community

We have become a gated community in our house, safety gate that is!

BG is a fully fledged crawler now and is speedy quick at getting around, she also has learnt to pull herself up on things, like the sofa, coffee table etc

Because of this we've had to move everything and put cushions all around the living room to stop her banging her head! My living room looks like a den!

Now as our living room and kitchen is open planned we've bought a stair gate to stop her going into the kitchen as she is obsessed with the cooker!! (she's trying to send me to an early grave!)

We now have a gate between the kitchen and living room, which she had learnt to climb *sigh*, I'm just grateful she wears a nappy as she'd have a very sore bum from falling on it!

The greatest thing about her crawling is that she now crawls to me, climbs up my legs, puts her arms up from a hug, has a hug, then shuffles off me and back on to the floor to play!! Its so damn cute

I also need to tell you about BG's great sense of timing this week.

BG was laughing away to her self, when I asked her what she was laughing at, she started chanting da, da, da, da,da!! Good girl BG !

Have a good weekend



  1. We managed to avoid gates, as we have doors everywhere, including at the bottom of the stairs and Rosemary has only just got the hang of opening the doors (to be honest, I have trouble sometimes, they can be so fiddly!). We may have to reassess that when Eleanor gets to the crawling stage, unless Rosemary's able to be responsible enough not to leave doors open.

    BG sounds adorable. I'm really looking forward to all those big milestones you get to witness in the first year and a half.

  2. I love how you are both ganging up on Daddy already - well trained haha x

  3. We too are a gated community. We have 3 downstairs alone.

    I will reclaim my house one day, oh yes!


    P.S Love the new background.

  4. Gates! Two in my living room, one at the top of the stairs and that one has been there since we moved in as Daddy is convinced that Top Ender will fall down the stairs in the middle of the night if she needs to go to the toilet.

    Wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to fight it to open when ever I need to go downstairs in the middle of the night to go to the toilet!

  5. Tasha - she is most of the time!You're lucky with all the doors

    The Wife Of Bold - We've ganging up on him for a while! lol

    Insomniac Mummy - Good for you!! Lol Thanks x

    Pippa D - Bless ya!
