Bumpers and knees and gourds

We decided not to buy a bedding set when putting together the nursery because we didn't want to use the traditional bumpers since we did not want to worry about the SIDS and suffocation risks associated with them. We decided we'd wait and see if a bumper became necessary, and if so, then we'd get one of the breathable bumpers. In the past couple weeks, Baby B has managed to wedge her little legs and arms (but mostly her legs) in between the slats of the crib to where she couldn't get them unstuck, so the time came to get a breathable bumper, which we did today.


Several times today Baby B managed to get her knees underneath her when she was on her tummy. She can also lurch forward a few inches at a time, but so far she hasn't put those two actions together yet. Once she figures that out, then it's Crawl City for this baby. We bought many babyproofing supplies while we were out today, so we'll start putting those around the house in the coming weeks (or sooner if necessary).


Tonight was the first night of yellow summer squash, and it went really well. In fact, she finished a whole squash all by herself (it was a pretty small one, though).

What a cute blog! You reminded me of when ours were littler. It is such a precious and wonderful time in a Mommy's life. Drop by our blog. There may be a few items you'd be interested in - shopping cart seat cover, door stoppers, etc.

Thanks again for a nice post. Babies are great!

OMG! Shes almost crawling! Just wait until . . . JUST KIDDING!

The bumper story was cute - was she upset about being stuck?

Around 6 months is my fave baby age. They are so much fun!

How did she get her leg stuck? Was she upset she couldn't get it out? Cute story!
I am so glad that she is doing so well eating "solids". I hope my experience is as easy going as your is.
