Jayden's First Steps!
He has been climbing up things and doing some controlled falling between objects, but not what you would call walking. I said to Penny today - I guess he is different to Ripley (he was walking at 11 months), Jay is so well developed in other ways. As we were talking about his walking, I picked him up, put him on his feet and let him go. I do this exercise quite often but this time he just stood there for about 10 seconds. We were dumb-struck. So I tried it again and he took 4 proper steps over to Penny!! Wow, we started cheering and clapping and he started shouting and laughing back. He was very pleased with himself. I am very very proud of the little fella.
