As you all know (from previous blog posts), James is quite the adventurer. Well, he continues to become more and more adept at moving QUICKLY from place to place. I can't turn away for more than two seconds or he'll be into something new. Here are some of the latest predicaments that James has gotten himself into:
Point of Clarification: Some of the pictures I'm going to post are pretty incriminating. I hope you all don't decide I'm a bad mom because I let James crawl all over the apartment. I promise that whenever he finds something dangerous (wires, plastic bags, etc.) that I didn't think he could get to I move them to a better place. I also keep a close eye on him during his adventures. Right now as I'm blogging, James is safely bouncing away in his jumper. In other words...please don't freak out, mom! ;)
First off, we have the first time James decided he could crawl through one of our chairs (this first time he actually got stuck and I had to save him...now he just slides right through):
Unfortunately, these are the same chairs that I use to keep James out of the kitchen:
Yeah, now I have to cover the chairs with a blanket, and that only slows him down enough for me to get him before he crawls through. He can still make it past the blockade and into the kitchen. Next baby-proofing goal? The kitchen! Or maybe it's just about time we invest in a baby gate.
Next, we have fun with blankets (ok, so this one doesn't really fit the theme, but I thought it was cute!):
Yesterday he managed to climb on top of our shoe basket:
Don't worry, I picked him up seconds before he dove headfirst out of the basket onto the tile floor.
And today, he climbed into our computer desk:
That one happened when I was on the phone for all of two seconds.
Yep! Keeping this little guy out of danger is a full-time job! Here's a video that shows how fast he's gotten at the army crawl (still no tummy off the ground crawling):
Gotta love this crazy boy!
