Safety First

Eli is becoming taller and stronger every day.  Now that we have two kids, I can’t focus on Eli 100% of the time.  Dax naps multiple times a day and I can’t have Eli sit in the room with me while I put him down or else Dax will never go down.  Eli just doesn’t have the concept of “quiet” down quite yet.  His new favorite thing to do is to lean over the railing to look at what is happening downstairs.  My biggest fear is that I would be tending to Dax and Eli would have an accident over this railing.  So, David and I decided that it just was way too unsafe to keep our railing as is, we thought it would be best to build a half wall.  He shouldn’t be able to climb it or fall over it.

David is a man of all trades, but we learned that building this wall was a two man job. Thankfully my dad was in town last week and helped him build the wall.  We couldn’t be more appreciative of his help last week because this project wouldn’t have gotten done.

Here is the progress for the wall.  It doesn’t look like much now, but it’s going to be beautiful when it’s done.  I have lots of ideas and I can’t wait to execute some of them!
