An Unintentional Leave of Absence

After neglecting this little corner of my life, I checked in this morning to see that I haven't posted a new blog entry in nearly a month?!  I have no excuses.  I guess I have just been enjoying life with a crawling baby.  Plus, NO napping = little time to type up a new post.  Okay, I have a few excuses...

I have tons of things to update (ie. 4 weeks of weekly Ellington photos to edit).    In the mean time, I have fallen in love with another inanimate object that does nothing to add to my home decor.
That's right...  A baby gate has changed my life!  After making the decision to purchase one for Ellington's playroom, I eagerly waited for it to arrive at our front door.
This was our temporary solution to keep the little one in her playroom and out of the dog bowls while I prepared dinner.  Loading the dishwasher is also a lot easier to do when you don't have an nonproductive little helper at your heels.  Unfortunately, this solution only lasted a day and a half.
Silly me.  I thought I could trick Ellington 'The Energizer Bunny' into staying put.  Thankfully, we now have the baby gate.  I am pretty confidant that she won't be able to escape now.


  1. That is ONE BIG baby gate!! Love it!! So glad that you can blog again. LYMI

  2. Ha! She's in little baby jail. You may have just inspired me to do the same...

  3. Lately, she has been banging her toys on the gate & we image she is saying 'GET ME OUTTA HERE!' The gate has made life sooo much easier!
