Leon is crawling so much and so well lately, that he’s always a blur.
Wooden floors fit our preferred pre-war urban aesthetic, but they’re not ideal for a baby who’s moving about. Even with grippy socks, Leon often falls and slips when he’s doing some of his fancier moves, like three point turns. Today, when our 6′ 2″ friend came to visit, Leon looked up at him (standing up) and fell backwards. Oops.
The best thing for the mobile baby is carpets/mats, or bare skin on the floors, but our floors aren’t in the best shape. We do the best we can to keep things clean but sometimes Leon’s knees are just covered in floor schmutz.
Luckily, 2 minutes on the boob can fix almost any bump or boo-boo. We also got the ubiquitous foam interlocking alphabet mat from a neighbor today (price=free) to add to the living room play area. I looked at photo of our living and said “It looks like crazy people live here.”
Crazy people do live here. Well, two nutter adults and a crazily cute baby!
