Thanks a Lot Emily and Jim

Emily and Jim were kind enough to loan us this cute walker that they got at a garage sale. At first Adam couldn't move it and just played with the toys. Then he learned to roll backwards, which was fine. Then he learned to go forward, and turn...and steer. Now he goes about causing all sorts of trouble and instead of keeping him contained it gives him the freedom to cause all sorts of problems. Well, I was checking my e-mail when I heard a loud crash. I went to the hall to find this...

That's right, he found the DVDs, nothing is safe now. In our pre-Adam life these DVDs were alphabetized, now I'll settle with them just staying on the shelf. What a menace.

Baby Jail

So, Scott loves to tease me about how I love to read other people's blogs...even people I don't know. Reading all of these blogs has made me realize what a wonderful medium this is to keep people up to date on the current happenings in our family. So, let me give you the rundown.

Adam is growing and developing at an alarming rate. He has decided that being in one place is boring and has taken off, causing all manner of mayhem. We find him in the most interesting places.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm very happy that he is developing all these necessary skills, but it makes getting anything done quite difficult. It was in the midst of all of this chaos that my good friend, Amy, loaned me what she refers to as "baby jail". I love baby jail.

It's basically six baby gates linked together to form a big circle. It keeps him contained while I do big, important things; like laundry. Don't get me wrong, I don't lock him up all day, just for a few minutes to get things done. Plus, he loves it.

So, my plan is to try to post on here e few times a week. We'll see how that goes.
