Gus is still dragging his belly, but he moves around pretty fast. The routine is to put him down next to his toys, which he plays with for a bit and then gets bored and starts to head either a) towards the electrical strip b) towards the lamp-stand on wheels or c) towards the fire.
So I spent quite a bit of time looking up baby fencing this week. Here’s an example of what’s out there:
This particular one costs $200 and I wasn’t able to find any deals on Craig’s list etc. Then it struck me…
Not exactly fashionable but not permanent and totally free.
After a day of thoroughly cleaning the floors, (including blocking off the electrical strip and moving the lamp) I sat back smuggly and told Gus out loud that he was free to go where ever he wanted.
So he promptly went in the kitchen, opened a drawer and slammed his fingers in it.
(this photo taken 15 minutes later, when tears had dried, toys had been played with and he ventured forth again -straight back for the same drawer)
