Why is it that babies/toddlers always seem to find the most dangerous places in your home and gravitate towards them? Ellery has always loved the stairs and we frequently find her lying down in this position. Dane has just discovered the stairs and squeals with excitement when he watches Ellery go up and down. He has yet to figure out how to climb them, but it is just a matter of time--we are back to the baby gate phase!!! Why don't they have more single story homes in California??
