"We've entered a new era," I announced yesterday to CP. "The era of of saying 'no'."
And so the day has come. Sweet little NS is--suddenly, it seems--exercising her new powers that lead to all kinds of no-no's, from rolling over on the changing table to pulling on electrical cords. Though I've tried to baby-proof our one-bedroom flat, I'm discovering to my dismay that there is no such thing as 100% baby-proof.
Today I caught her crawling forward, just a couple of paces at a time, across slippery kitchen linoleum. Then she started reaching for the cupboards. Note to self: Install cupboard safety locks tomorrow!
