Into Everything!

February 19, 2012

Carter is into absolutely everything. Sure he likes his toys but he has a curious streak that makes him want to touch and taste everything he isn’t supposed to. I suppose it is just a baby phase, but it is exhausting! Things he wants to put in his mouth- Electrical outlets? Check. Cords? Check. That piece of dirt on the floor? Check. Basically if he can choke on it, get electrocuted or get sick from it, he wants it.

We have baby proofed, but you can’t create a rubber room. Sometimes I am baffled at the things he finds. I forget that he is looking at the same house with a very different perspective than we are. Frank and I find ourselves constantly saying “no, no”. We have a good size living room and we create a section that is blocked of where he can touch anything. Of course he doesn’t want to be in that area. He wants to go explore! So exploring is what we let him do. You can always tell exactly where he has been by following his little path of destruction.

Don’t get me wrong, Carter loves to help around the house too. He helps me empty the dishwasher (I use my foot to hold him back and sing songs to distract him from crawling inside), he helps do the laundry (he sits right in front of the dryer blocking it, while I try to put clothes in), when we take out the trash, Carter races to the door to assist (or trys to escape).

With each new phase comes something else to be excited about. Right now I am loving watching my little explorer learn!

LESSON LEARNED:  Baby proof, baby proof, baby proof.

    Had to smile because my little guy is the same way…we have playpens, gates, locks, you name it! Their thirst for understanding how things work is fascinating!
