I feared this day. I also wished for it…especially before I went back to work full-time…to see those first little steps with his hands over his head for balance and cheering…seriously, my heart.
On the worrying side I thought the moment our guy started toddling around that 600sqft would suddenly feel like 100sqft. It doesn’t. It feels like 600sqft with a little guy toddling around getting into trouble everywhere he can. I figure that’s pretty close to 2000sqft with a little one toddling around getting into trouble without the gates needed for stairs.
The upside is there are only 600sqft for him to get into trouble in, there are only so many drawers and cupboards and closets for him to try and open and pull everything out of. The downside is he gets bored in the house but that just means we have to get outside. ALOT.
