I have three giveaway's going on and closing this week, have you checked them out yet? The links are above!
Lester, my bloggy friends. Bloggy friends, this is Lester. He's my stair body guard and sanity keeper. Well, er, he doesn't do a great job on the latter, but he contributes.
Robert decided this morning that he was ready to climb the stairs, and boy did he ever! He bolted up both flights (we have a landing) first thing this morning. I couldn't believe it. I mean, I can, but it happened so quick and while he had shown interest in the first stair or two, he was quick!
Anyways, after his first nap and several attempts at him doing it while I was busy, I realized I couldn't go without a gate.
I never used one with Rawni and it was never a problem. I had hoped to do the same with Robert and just help him up and down and make sure he's got it under control before I can leave him. I just can't risk it though. He's too quick and I couldn't even get a glass of water before he bolted from one room and was trying to climb up them again!
went digging through the garage and closets and found all of the pieces to an old gate we had. Sweating to install the danged thing against the stupid bars on our stairs while a one year old stood next to me shaking the gate and two other kids stood there asking how they would get in and out and if it was done yet "hired" Lester.
Dear Lester, Thank You. You made the rest of the day more relaxing.
On a completely side note, my camera was giving me a bit of trouble yesterday and more today. I don't know why it does this but all of a sudden my shutter speed will change to extremely slow and I can't seem to find anything to do to fix it. Please tell me someone has the answer?
