Can I Put A Dog Run In The House?

No longer is Davis hiding the fact that he crawls, he is all over the place. Yes, that' right. He hid it from us for the longest time. Here I was wishing he would hurry up and start moving around, but he was doing it the whole time. I caught him out of the corner of my eye, but when he would see me, he would stop. We set up hidden cameras in the room, but that kid is too smart for us. As soon as he saw the not so hidden camera, he decided to stop. Almost like he was telling us, 'be patient my dumb parents. In a short period of time, you are going to wish I wasn't mobile!' And ah, yes. That time has come. No longer can I place the little guy in front of one of his videos, on the floor to play, or simply turn my back for .5 seconds. He is a speedy little baby Gonzales and is sprint crawling down the hall. Can we please go back to the hiding part? Now I'm glad he decided to crawl late because this child is wearing me out! Whew! I am so in for it!

And come on! Can someone please tell me why baby gates are so expensive? Our doorways are super wide, so we can't fit the regular ones, we have to get extreme length to fit those babies! I'm thinking at this point that putting a dog run in the living room may just save me a headache. Like a two for one kind of deal. The dog is getting on my nerves, throw him in the dog run. I have to leave the room, place baby in the dog run. Both dog and baby are out of control, let them chase each other in there. The dog run is big enough for both! Surely CPS will be okay with this, right? Talk about the perfect place for a time out. But until I have a big enough house for this huge dog run, I will just have to dip into Davis' college fund to buy these beautiful gates. Can't someone at least make some to go with my decor?!

I don't think this tree will fit in a hallway closet, so there will just have to be fake grass all over the floor! He is so proud of himself, being able to crawl everywhere and explore EVERYTHING!! Aren't we exited!

While putting away Davis' laundry, I found him inside his closet playing Peek a Boo with the curtains. It looks like he's staring the down, making sure they don't get away!

He was having so much fun! This has to be my most favorite stage yet!! He melts my heart!

Those times are the best....and the MOST tiring! Take lots of pictures and yes, get the dog run. Why DON'T they make them more decorative?

A dog run! I think that would be perfectly acceptable! He would probably love it its so much bigger than a play pen!

He is so stinken cute!

Cute, cute age and an active one too!!! My boy was a climber. Ohhhhhhh.....yes. Everything was a mountain to be conquered!

Found you on Theta Mom, and I'm a new follower! You know, I did see nice looking extended baby gates, but they were so ridiculously priced that I wouldn't even consider them. I like the idea of a dog run. My kids are 7 and 5, and I would still use it!

How old is your babe again?? The crawling and moving stage is definitely a hoot and it definitely gets mommy and daddy moving. I think the dog run is a great idea!!!

This made me chuckle and think back to some pictures I have of me as a toddler--I would be in the playpen, all my toys would be outside the playpen and the puppy (St Bernard) would be in their with me. I think a dog run makes perfect sense ;-)

Monkey Man just started crawling too and we have large doorways too. We have placed our rather large ottoman in one doorway and his toychest in the other so we can block him in the livingroom. I can not tell you how many times he has snuck away from us! Sneaky little booger! Absolutely adorable pictures by the way!

Ha! Go Davis!! That's too funny! Nik was kinda like that too!

I know Baby Gates are ridic, and the plastic gate (kennel) play pins are too!! Ridiculous!
