Photo of the week- Our little jailbird

We had to put baby gates up recently for safety reasons- it's just too dangerous having Freddie crawl into our little kitchen when we're cooking dinner. It's small enough when William and I both try to squeeze into it but add in a crawling 8-month old and you have a whole 'nother story. I'm just too scared of stepping on his little paws or dropping something on him. So, the gates were a must.

As you can tell, he had somewhat of a hard time adjusting to them. The poor guy looks like he's trying to escape from jail! The worst is when he grabs onto them with both hands and shakes them as hard as he can. Talk about making me feel guilty!!

This was taken a few days ago though and, thankfully, he has gotten used to them a little bit. He now likes to hold onto the bars and pull himself up or else gnaw on them to soothe his incoming teeth. They have become useful to all of us.

The only slight problem at the moment is when I try to rush through them. Only part of it swings open so if you don't go straight out you end up hitting your thighs off the edges of the gate. I have the bruises to prove it! I guess there's a period of adjustment for all of us. :)
