At 11 months, my daughter was already walking and with practice, she was getting smoother and better. My son was yet to let go on his own but was excellent with his walker. You’ll see him very confident with his walker, turning effortlessly at a bend when encountered by a chair, dresser or even Maya, and zooming by the chairs in the living room. He was very careful in not causing an accident with his sit-to-stand toy.
On the 27th of October 2015, Armani took his first steps taking just 2-3 steps. On the 28th of October, 2015, Armani was walking more than 6ft after his first steps. He was overjoyed and ecstatic as he touched the other chair, excited he had finally reached his goal after watching Maya complete the same challenge multiple weeks in a row. He became more enthusiastic when he saw my face light up with such joy over his accomplishment, he wanted to do more, and he did, successfully.
The following weeks, you would see both of my kids successfully parading their walking skills with both hands in the air, grinning from ear to ear, every time they reached the other chair or me with my arms stretched out ready to receive and praise them for a job well done.
