dylan-proofed      ornament hangers

How do you baby-proof a Christmas tree? You stuff it behind a couch and a table, of course! Will it stop him? I don’t know yet. He’s pretty determined. I have a vision of him climbing to the top and trying to eat the star.

My child is 100% BOY. He likes to climb precariously onto his toys and balance there, like circus performers who ride standing on moving horses. He is climbing something every moment he is awake. Oh Good Lord, this will be Dylan in eighteen years, one of those Le Parkour kids who jump across buildings!

And then there’s the vision of him trying to swallow one of those awful metal ornament hooks, so I bought these ribbon hooks, and they loop around and hang the ornament. Much prettier than metal hooks too 🙂

Here is the sneaky devil trying to squeeze back between the table and couch to get at the tree, and at some point, giving up, fingers in mouth, to gaze in wonder.

p.s. Please don’t mind the snot on his sleeve and the breakfast on his shirt. I’ve still got a house full of sickies here 😉
