Putting the baby-proofing to the test

For quite some time now, we’ve had all the major dangerous and fragile items protected to what seems to be a sensible degree. Many things are totally inaccessible, but we intentionally left latches off a few of the safer cabinets, and left things like the CD rack out as an experiment in teaching Jace that the limits of what he’s allowed to reach may be more restrictive than the limits of what he’s capable of reaching.

Lately Jace has been achieving new levels of mobility and curiosity (more on mobility in the next post), and he’s been putting the baby-proofing to the test.

Here’s what he does when he thinks nobody’s looking:

1. Get into all the accessible cabinets:

2: Get into all the accessible drawers:

3: Figure out how to work the tap on the kegerator:

4: Make absolutely sure that if something comes out of the kegerator tap, he’ll manage to get it:

For those concerned viewers, the answer is no — there is no beer hooked up to the tap. Nor has there been any time that Jace has been around… I guess he just knows that there should be.

That is too funny! And now I’m kinda jealous that I’m not under 3 feet tall.

Oh my gosh, he is so a Leibman child. Smart smart smart little Jace, I always knew you were advanced.
