31 for 21: Stairs... Check

Well Miss Em has been at it again. She has decided to learn how to go down the stairs ALONE! She has been going up and down for a while now, but holding my hand. Up she has been doing alone for the most part, but I never let her go down by herself. Our PT advised us to take the gate down... WHAT!!! And watch my baby girl fall head over heels down the stairs! I just couldn't do it.

Then the gate broke:( It was on it's way out to begin with. It's had a few mishaps in the last couple of years. But the other day I just had to throw it out. We were going to replace it, but then we saw this.

see ya!
Thanks Em you just saved us 40 bucks , no new gate needed! 

Now the problem of having her roaming around downstairs, lots of trouble she can get into down there. Miss Em is a master slinker.  Before you even realize it, she has quietly slinked away to  investigate/destroy something.
And lets all hope my other lovies who occasionally have "tails" don't leave the front door open.
Guess we better hide the car keys too :)

Yesterday she walked down the stairs, pointed to the front door and said "that"!!! She told me she wanted to go outside!! It's coming!!!  That little head of hers is working overtime, and those words are coming!

Hooray for mastering stairs!! I am still waiting for Anna to master them...I am so tired of our gates!
And those words will come -- soon! Anna still doesn't say much that is comprehendible - but her vocalization has really taken off since starting school. I bet Em's will too.
