Nina crawls over to my feet when she gets tired. It's usually when I'm washing dishes or cooking in the kitchen. She would lick my feet,cry for a holding. It is so dangerous that she hangs around there, but at the same time it's too cute to refuse. I keep a soft blanket on the hard wood floor to protect her knee and soft skin.
As an inexpensive baby proof solution, we hooked up some corner/edge bumper, out of plumbing pipe insulation. It was great that they came already cut in the middle with adhesives. However, our physical daughter examined the material by licking it, figured out how to take them off and wouldn't stop. She found herself another fun project.
We also made the geometric shaped cushion into the wall to keep her away from kitchen area. Too bad it was a wee little bit too short. Made it a fun obstacle for her to get through. For kids, everywhere is their playground.
Nina finally managed to get up by herself by holding a railing on her crib! It happened when I was trying to put her to nap. Oh man! It won't be long till she falls out of her crib, if we don't come up the solution. She just reached and knocked over a monitor camera that was attached on the top corner of the crib, too. It seems that she grows up more rapidly day by day.
