I ordered another baby gate. It probably won’t work - my kitchen table is right there and the cats will probably just jump from the table top over the stacked gates - but it’s worth a try.
On a more fun note, Ray plays peekaboo and it’s the most adorable thing ever! He especially does it after a bath - he pulls the edge of the towel over his face, then yanks it off and grins and giggles hysterically as I say, “peekaboo!”
Tonight, he even did it with his onesie while I was lotioning his skin. Then I did it with his shorts and that was even funnier!
Ray is also super into balls right now. They have the big punching balloons in his daycare classroom that his teachers say he’s fascinated with. And when I picked him up this afternoon, he was playing with a large, round bouncy ball. As I was packing up and chatting with his teacher, Ray initiated a game of catch with her - with basketball-style bounce passes! Very impressive.
I love this age… Every day is something new and fun to discover together.
