The baby gates are here! We have a really big opening from our living room to our kitchen. I found the superyard, a customizable baby gate that can convert from a hexagon, to a rectangle, and can even be self supporting in a zig zag configuration. It fits perfectly in our large doorway and later it can be reconfigured to block teh fireplace or protect the Christmas tree. For now, life is much easier now that Lydia has a living room sized playpen to roam around.
