I forgot to mention that we found a baby gate solution to our rec room! The gate is a Sure & Secure® Custom-Fit Gate by Summer Infant. It can extend up to 12ft! We are only using 2 of the 3 sections because it closes off the area we need without taking up too much of the room. It was kinda pricy, but luckily we had a gift certificate that covered almost all of it!
Do you like the funky little rocking chair? That was mine as a little girl and I’ve dug it out for Alex. The fabric is a velvet featuring a partridge and some fruit and flowers. I am planning on having it recovered in blue jean for Alex – more manly I think.
