not a day too soon

Matt and I went shopping for baby gates on Saturday. Willa has gotten pretty good at crawling and we figured it would be a short time before she discovered the stairs. We left Willa downstairs while Matt installed the upstairs gate for less than 5 minutes. I heard her start to cry a bit so I went to check on her and found this...
She discovered the stairs! Willa! This little girl is all over the place and wants to CONSTANTLY stand up by herself. She falls daily. Good thing she is so close to the ground. So now our stairs look like this...
We are so chic! Willa can sit up, lay down, crawl, stand up, cruise, and now climb stairs all by herself. But she still can't roll over from her back to her tummy if she's on a hard surface. Strange!

Finished Nursery
At 8 months old, Willa's nursery is finally done. Her dresser came in last week so I finished decorating and arranging this weekend (with Matt's help getting that HEAVY dresser upstairs. Thanks hubbsa!!!). I'm happy with it. I painted the birdy paintings a couple weeks ago.

Wow I love the nursery! How do you feel about your glider chair? I'm in the market for one and would love any recommendations.

I love it! We have the same baby gate. haha Doesn't the top part seem totally pointless?

I love my glider. I spend so much time in it. It takes up so much room but I don't know what I would do without it.

I love the birdies! More birdies! You did a great job! The gates came none too soon. It sounds like she'll be walking up to the Thanksgiving table saying, feed me!
