Monte and Hunter both took their first steps a week before they turned one. When Carter was 11 months I told my hubby, Carter isn't going to walk by his first birthday. He had been cruising around furniture for a while, but was still so very wobbly when we would walk with him holding hands.

Not that it was a big deal. By your 3rd child you could really care less when they do what. And Carter has always been our "lazy" baby. What, with never rolling over and all!!! (at 9 1/2 months he finally figured he could flip over) But just because you know it doesn't matter, doesn't mean you don't want him to walk. And when we go outside I always think how much nicer it would be if he could. You know, instead of crawling in the dirt and eating grass and leaves.

Well last night he was walking around the living room like usual, and all of a sudden he just let go of the ottoman and walked toward the couch. He made it about 5 steps before he fell. I think it might of been from the screaming from me for his daddy to LOOK LOOK!!! He continued to "walk" for the next 30 minutes or so until he was ready for bed. But how exciting. I hope he practices some more today.
