Is this spider dangerous? I have a baby and don't want her to accidently get bit.?

I have killed two spiders that look very similar today. Neither were in webs, just walking around my house. I have a 10 month old baby that is crawling around and beginning to explore, I don't want her to come in contact with these spiders if they are poisonous. I live in the West Texas Area.

Thank you for your time.

    I would stomp on a spider around an infant and do pest control. No way any spider bites my baby. (I have no children).

    Seeing the top of 5he spider would be a lot better, the legs don't look browñ recluse, but low confidence here. Spiders don't run around biting people anyway, often you have to provoke them or mash them against skin.

    You may have recluse in west Texas, but they are reclusive and seldom seen.

    I am thinking wolf spider with this one, no threat at all as such.

    Doesn't look like a brown recluse so I doubt it
