Talk about great luck! Ana and I just saw Alex takes his first solo steps! Woohoo! He's been taking steps now for a few weeks, but only between Ana and I on the rug. We get him balanced and then other person calls him and he'd take a few steps and collapse in your arms (very cute). But he's never taken any steps by himself yet, though he's quite capable... he's been moving around the house by balancing against walls and furniture- not holding on any more, but just leaning againt them.
But just now he wanted to get from a chair to a table across the way, and just decided to walk to get there! Yeah! He took 2 or 3 steps solo and arrived unscathed and both Ana and I were RIGHT there to see it. AWESOME.
