I knew he would walk early, but I didn't expect this to happen so soon!
Remember this little guy turned eight months old about a week ago! He has been wanting to walk for months. Last week, on Tuesday, I was sitting on the treadmill getting him dressed after his bath. When I stood him up, he saw the safety clip hanging a few feet away from him. He let go of my hands and took five steps to grab the clip! No hands! No walls! No help! Super exciting, very big, monumental skill--his first steps! I hardly knew what to say, so I took him away from the clip and gave him a hug!
Since then he's only walked all by himself twice...both times were very short. But, he loves "cruising" and is very efficient at crawling. If he wants something that doesn't have a wall near it, he will crawl to it pretty quickly.
I'm going to try to upload a video...wish me luck!
