Quinn and I have been holding off on buying a gate to block our stairs for some time now. The problem is with our stairs we'd have to buy a gate with a door on it and they cost $40. Something we think is a complete rip off. So rather than waste money on a gate that we'd only use for a few months we decided to teach Sage to climb the stairs instead. The thing is, this girl can climb. She's been playing at the base of the stairs for a few months now and has finally found the independence and freedom to climb them. Granted, we still have to hover right behind her because she's still a little tipsy here or there, but the babe is awesomely coordinated, something she didn't inherit from her mother (who falls up the stairs, often.).
And Happy Monday!
