The pillow fort has been dismantled.  I realized it was time to let her explore new frontiers when I spent almost the entire time behind the pillows trying to desperately catch her little cankles before she made it all the way to the other side.  Violet could scale that sucker in seconds.

V has been beyond excited about her new found freedom.  She has been checking out every square inch of every room.  The kitchen is an especially interesting place because she's not allowed in all the places she wants to explore.  We've childproofed our kitchen cabinets, but that doesn't stop her from trying to yank them open with the force of a Jedi.  Size matters not.  (Yoda's words, not mine.)  And if I close the refrigerator before she has a chance to grab something off the door and put her mouth all over it, she cries like I just told her I was canceling Christmas.

I could just eat those little sausage fingers.

As for Neil, this basically means he has no way to escape.  Where the cat goes, baby girl follows.

 [Insert hysterical baby laughter here.]
