Anthony finally took his first steps about a week and a half ago...he's 14 months. Even at this point, the only time he'll "walk" is when we're all huddled around him clapping and cheering him on! I'm sure it'll be 15+ months before he decides he wants to walk all the time. He is such a fast crawler...I think he feels like walking slows him down too much! But he does do his "bear crawl" (on his hands and feet--not knees) more and more. We're not pushing him...just letting him do it in his own time. However, we were very excited to see him venture out a bit and take some steps all by himself. He just decided to do it one day...yippee!!!
