When babies started to roll over (probably about three months old), this is the time to child-proof your home. Because babies grow so fast, sooner of later they will start crawling. And before you know it, they will start cruising immediately.
Child safety is very important in the home to prevent serious injuries. Babies are naturally curious with the things around them. They grab anything they can reach. They do not know if it’s dangerous. Now, if your baby is rolling over to his or her tummy it is time to remove unnecessary things in the crib like stuff toys and blanket. My little girl started rolling at three months. We moved her from the bassinet to the full-sized crib. She was a wiggly baby so there was nothing in the crib at bed time except herself. She liked sleeping on her tummy too. I think most babies do.
Then when your baby begins crawling, it is advisable to remove or relocate all the small and movable home furnishing like the small side tables or tv trays to a place where he or she cannot access immediately. I learned my lesson when our tv tray fell over my little girl when she crawled towards it and tried to pull up. Because the tv tray is light, it easily stumbled over her. She got a big bruise on the forehead. I felt very bad and was hysterical when baby cried to the max. We have two tv trays so I took them all away. We do not have a center table either. My husband told me that little kids will get bruises as part of growing up, but I can’t take it. It breaks my heart whenever I see baby cry when she bumps her head or stumbles down.
Child-proofing your home is advisable in many ways. Covering the power outlets is another important thing. Babies like sticking their fingers in little holes. You think they won’t notice those outlets because their on the wall? Uh-ah. My baby and I were playing in the living room when she decided to crawl away from me. I was watching to see where she’s heading. I was amused when I saw her crawling towards the wall, looking at the power outlet, and tried sticking her index finger in there. Hurriedly, I told her “No, no! That’s dangerous.” She listened and crawled back to me.

As a toddler now, my daughter is into everything. She grabs her small chair to use as stepping stool so she can see what’s on the kitchen counter or on my dresser.

As a wife and mother, one of the significant concerns I have is my family's comfortability and safety. Whether we are traveling or just staying at home, it is always important that our household is safe all the time especially for our toddler. When my daughter started crawling, that was the time we began child-proofing our home.
As far as safety is concerned, I want my family to be secured against bad elements like sickness and bad habits. Another thing is that, my husband and I are constantly surfing the Internet. Our computer has been infected by malwares, spywares, and viruses a few times. Because we do researches on work-related stuff, it is difficult for us to really tell what website is scattering those infections. That is why online security has been in the list of our top priority in the house.
We do lots online transactions like shopping and banking. Seems like Bitdefender Total Security gives total protection against these bad infections on the Internet.

Next to security concerns on shopping and online banking is threats of viruses thru social networking. We all know that even a child has his or her own user account on social networks. Not mine. I want my child's privacy.

Yay, winner! I joined two contests recently. First was a photo contest for my daughter on Facebook. It was sponsored by Charm It! Participants were asked to submit a photo of our kids with their favorite animals. Here’s the photo I submitted.
Saying hi to the puppy 🙂
Though the photo did not grab the grand prize which is the Charm It! bracelet, it was chosen to win one of the consolation charms. It’s really cute!
Charm It! contest winner.
Second contest was a Golden Records CD giveaway at one of my friend’s blog, It’s My Party (And I’ll Cry If I Want to…). The grand prize is a Golden Records: The Magic Continues – Celebrity Series vol. 1 CD. I am very happy to get her email saying I won the contest. The CD contains classic children songs like Pop Goes The Weasel and stories like Cinderella. This is a great addition to my daughter’s kids music CD collection. We are listening to it together and she liked it. Listening to children’s music like this helps toddlers enhance their comprehension and speech.

My daughter dances to lively songs in the CD and she also sings along to the familiar songs. It’s really fun!
