Would you trust this face?

If you can't trust babies, who can you trust? (Sarah Kelber )

Don't be fooled. This baby can't be trusted.

Quite suddenly, he cannot be relied upon to stay where he is put. Can you believe that?

He's been rolling a bit for the past few weeks (so we've obviously been careful about where we lay him down), but now, he's rolling with purpose.

Last night, he rolled across most of the living room to get to his big brother. The night before that, he saw me peeking in on him in his room and rolled -- and rotated himself! -- all the way to one end of his crib. "Oh, hi!" he seemed to be saying. "Is it time for the after-hours party?"

I wasn't expecting to have to start thinking about gates quite this early, but the kid can cover some ground, and we have a lot of stairs. (Townhouse living, don'tcha know.) So it seems it is time.

Babies, man. They might look innocent, but you can't rely on them.
