Just last week Amelia hit one of the biggest milestones I think there is as she took her first steps!!!
She’s been confidently cruising and walking with a walker for ages but has struggled with finding her balanced unaided and gaining the confidence to let go. She would take the odd step between thing or fall toward the sofa but never properly let go. Last Thursday afternoon she just let go and walked toward me. Four little steps but they were steps!! Obviously I was over the moon and tried to encourage more steps but she just did not seem that interested and was again only taking the odd step between people!
As the start of this week came around she was getting more confident and was starting to stand unaided and then I finally managed to catch her taking 6-8 steps on camera! Now she has really got her balance and is taking steps every day.
Here’s a link to my Instagram to see the videos I have caught of Amelia taking those amazing first few steps.
It is such an exciting time and I can’t wait to have an Autumn and Winter of Amelia finding her feet and toddling around!
Amelia was 13 and a half months when she took her first steps, how old was your little one when they started to walk?
