Yesterday Jayce took a few steps by himself for the first time. The facebook consensus is that this does count as walking! (Thanks guys!) I plopped him down and he stood for a second, took a few steps forward and then realized he wasn’t holding onto anything and sat down. I was so excited and kept trying to get him to do it again, but ever since he has been clinging to my hands for dear life whenever he is vertical.
I’m wondering if yesterday’s steps gave him a little boost of confidence, because today he climbed a stair at the playground, and then when we got home raced for our stairs, and up a few! Now I’m going to have to get that gate that I’ve been putting off!!
