DS is strong enough to push the sliding door now. What's the best way to stop the door from sliding either way? Thanks!

It may not be the most convenient thing - but they have metal brackets that you tighten w/a screw along the track. Or - if you use the door a lot we have used a broomstick handle set into the track. ( just don't let him see you put it in there or he will know how to get it out).
You could also add a handle @ the top of the sliding glass door. It is like a lever w/ a catch release. I'm pretty sure doors can be retrofitted w/ these.

I'm not sure how well this works, but there is a babyproofing item specific to sliding doors called sliding door locks. http://www.kidco.com/safety.cfm#2
