Let the babyproofing begin!

Tonight we finally took our first step towards getting this house ready for Anya’s imminent mobility – we put foam guards around the hearth of our fireplace.  They’re only attached with double-sided sticky tape, so I’m guessing we’ll eventually need to find something stronger to hold them on, but for now it should work.  She’s not crawling yet or pulling up, but it’s not for lack of trying.  Today she grabbed the side of the laundry basket and had her chest off the floor up to her belly button.  It got much trickier for her as I took more and more laundry out of the basket to put away – she started sliding across the floor.  Poor kid; we really don’t have any surface that is ideal for her to practice with when it comes to pulling up.  Everything is either too high, too slippery, or not sturdy enough.  It would help if she could push up on her knees without having her face on the floor, I suppose.
We haven’t been blogging as often as we had been in the past, and it’s because we don’t want to take time away from playing with Anya to post.  She’s so much fun these days!  We’ll put up a big post next week when she turns 8 months old.
