When he sat down after accomplishing his finest aided walk yet, he looked around only to be greeted with a round of applause and a standing ovation. Leo looked so impressed with himself and knew he had done something amazing.
Once he had calmed down from all the excitement and stopped crawling the lengths of the room in what seemed to be a victory lap, he attempted it all over again. With each attempt he used his little feet to get him on the move. He put one little foot in front of the other and off he plodded...
Pitter pattering on those little feet...
With each attempt he went that little bit further, guided only by me pushing his walker out of the way of stationary obstacles....steering is something that he has not yet mastered, but one thing at a time!
He successfully plodded from one end of the living room and out into the hall. Only to abandon his walker there and then...In an attempt to climb the stairs.
This was such an un-expected shock. He has been walking a few steps up until now but never like this. A switch seems to have flicked and turned his determination up a notch or Two. Maybe Leo will be on his feet and walking at some point in the next few months?
At 10 months old, I am really impressed and so proud of him. I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the next few months!
Did you notice that Leo walked the walk in his much loved Slugs & Snails - Boy Tights?
Maybe he will be walking before I return to work!?
When did your little one's learn to walk?
