Now that LO is crawling and cruise all of the place, and his favorite place to be is in our hallway. I had to go gate shopping.
You think this would have been a easy task but it wasn't.
Since I have my step has a double banister and a hand rail on one it made it hard to find a gate that work with it
This is what my steps look like
Still a regular would work cause you need to have at least one wall to install it, I had to do some reach.
The first gate I brought didn't work at all cause It tight pressure to lock since there now real way to get it to have tight pressure I sent it back.
The second gate was white and didn't it didn't look good with out step and you have to add a 2 x 4 and a bunch of strap to make it work and my hubby thought it would look tacky so I brought it back
Then I order a dog gate from amazon that worked perfect it's a north state super gate deluxe decor gate ... It stands alone, but used straps to make it super secure .. And it looks good too!!!
Hope this helps anyone that's having the same issue

My sewing board challenge for this week is "easy peasy little projects"
I actually have a few small easy sewing project on my list but I really needed the holders now that LO is 7 months and tend to throw everything everywhere especially when we are at the supermarket and mall.
They were super fast and easy .. I made all of them in about a hour while LO napped
This is what I did
Cut fabric .. Well all the fabric are scraps so I don't really have any real measurements but from what I saw on Pinterest the normal measurement is 10.5in x 4in .. I made my pacifer holder as close a possible to that
Then I iron the 2 ends
Then fold in half
Then fold the end to the middle
Turn in half again
Then I sewed the 2 sides
Add clip to one end and sew down go back and fourth about three times
Add the elastic on the other end
My sippy cup holder is a little different
My sippy cup holder 22in by 3in again scraps
Iron top and bottom ends
Then iron in half, right sides together
Turn right side out, iron with seam in the back
Add 1 1/4 elastic to one end of the fabric and a clip to the other end
Sew in place
Here's all the holders I made .. I really love them .. My Sophie and snack cup holder is exactly like the pacifer holder just longer.
