today, after we got home from a grand day out, my mom was getting the last of our groceries while i brought milo inside.
i put him on the ground to get out some wiggles, since he'd been in either the carseat or a shopping cart for the majority of the day.
he saw the cat and wanted to walk towards her, but didn't even bother holding onto my hands, so i was holding him under his arms, but only just barely.
he started walking towards her, and he seemed so steady and focused, so i let go of him completely, and he did it! he took four steps on his own towards the cat.
he's just shy of 11 months old, weighs in at 21 pounds (i checked him on the wii fit this morning) and he's finally taken his first real steps.
