SD was playing with Raymond. I took advantage of her asking to take him in the other room and play because I had some things to do. I guess she got tired of playing with him and just sat him down in the living room where her brother was playing video games. She then went off Ito do other things.

I was sitting on my bed doing some work on my computer and Raymond was crawling to the top of the stairs about to go down. He tries to go down the stairs by laying sideways and rolling. He was inches away. It would have been awful.

I just remember screaming, "The baby!" My foot got tangled in my computer cord and I was falling trying to get loose. I got to him in time though.

At first I was really angry because I was so scared, but she is young and made a mistake. She realizes now that you cannot pass off a baby without making sure he is truly in the care of someone else.

You should get a gate with a door for the top of the stairs for your peace of mind.  My son fell down the stairs once and I dived down after him and of course then he was fine and I was jacked up.  I'm glad you had a close call and not something worse.

Yes, I'm still feeling very uneasy considering we already have one child with a lifetime disability due to a fall down some stairs. My stomach feels sick.

Oh wow, scary! So glad you saw him! I think I'm going to install gates before N can crawl.

The stairs have a door that I stay on them to keep closed. We can't use gates in our house. Anyway, one of the kids left the door open enough that Raymond pulled it open. That's the only way I even noticed him there.
