300

We never did find a gate for our stairs when Oliver was a baby, and now Sophie is at it and we still have no gate.  She gets the most mischievous smile on her face as she tries to make it to the top before I can grab her.  I'm grateful Oliver never fell down the stairs and hope we get a gate soon.

Seriously the leg warmers are awesome! now she just needs some thigh warmers.
We have never had a baby gate here, but we have the landing ours would only fall half as far. I think we have all taken a tumble at least once, but never did the girls as babies. My neighbor down the street with the same house as me has a boy Chloe's age and a younger girl, she at one point had 6 gates up in her house. LOL!

I wish we had our gate back up! Acadia fell down them last night! Acadia and Sophie are twins with the leg warmers. Acadia won't wear socks or tights so I made a bunch of them.

How did you make them?

They are made out of socks (since I can't knit)
Here is a link to one of the many on-line tutorials:

The only thing that I did different is that I made the band on the bottom smaller...I didn;t like how thick/wide theirs is so I made mine smaller. I got my socks from the dollar store or when there was good sales.
