  • He started the day before his birthday really going distances without grabbing things, like one room to the other. He has finally mastered the transition from carpet to linoleum and back. The linoleum used to trip him up.

  • I think mine was about eight months old when she took her first few steps without holding onto anything, but for a few months after that she still preferred crawling because she got where she wanted to go a lot faster.
