Wednesday, December 3, 2008 - Update


I don't know why I haven't had much to talk about the last few days. I've taken some new pictures and video, but we don't have enough room on our computer to get them off the camera. It seems all Ryan does is back up pictures to make room for more and yet we still run out of space. Move over Suri and Shiloh!! I think Olivia is the most photographed baby.

She is still riding her pony all over the house. Sometimes, however, she doesn't really "ride" it. It's more like she straddles it, lifts up on the handlebars and carries it around the house. I've tried to explain to her that she's making it a bit more difficult than it has to be. I'm learning, however, that Olivia likes to do things HER way with a stubborness that is second only to her daddy. I've gotta get some baby-proofing done. I'm having the hardest time finding a gate for our stairs, so I'm just using a barstool for now. Olivia has also discovered our little Christmas tree upstairs. She rides over to it on her pony and plays with the branches and ornaments. She is also perfecting the army crawl and can scoot around the house fairly well. Since Olivia has started becoming more mobile, I have felt a reassurance that she is going to be just fine. Every day it seems she is progressing more and more and is such a delight to be around.

There is a company that we get catalogs from all the time. It is called One Step Ahead. They have tons of gate options. One of the ones that they sell is a configure gate that you can build to any size you need. Here is the link:

Just a thought!

Absolutely the best baby gate there is. I have worked in a day care for a year and a half and this is what we use in our baby rooms. They're great because you use your foot to open it.

This is also a great gate. While you have to have a hand free, it would probably work better at the top of the stairs because I'm not sure how accessable the foot pedal thing on the other gate would be going UP the stairs if you put it at the top or going DOWN the stairs if you put it at the bottom.

Good luck!
