Reluctant Babyproofing

We started with one collapsible gate and a bumper around the coffee table, then putting some things up on higher shelves and installing two more semi-permanent gates. We then moved the wine rack behind the couch and have secured the outlets. Since not everything can be gated or raised, we have also taken to barricading and blocking access to cords or things that can be pulled over. We are also watching vigilantly to see if she takes interest in cords, plants and the toilet. But unfortunately for the cat, we cannot baby proof him and he remains quite fascinating to Sidney.

All of this broke through a few weeks ago when she started crawling. Our house is under siege and looks to remain so until further notice.
