We put these gates up again a couple of days ago because just about every other minute, Jeremy would take off for the stairs. He's actually pretty good at going up the stairs and letting him do so, even without immediate supervision, isn't necessarily so tenuous anymore. But, he's obsessed with the bathroom sink and playing with the water there and it just gets tiresome to continually have him scream about being taken away from it.
These gates first went up when Harry was just nine months old and, at the time, he seemed to not mind them, if almost get a kick out of something new. At one-year of age, Jeremy seems to know that they are a barrier to something he wants and is much less receptive to their presence. Although, it admittedly takes a lot less to set Jeremy off these days.
