It took place in a few different steps. We noticed that he was standing more and more confidently on his own and were just waiting for him to take the first steps. It always seemed like he wobbled a little, thought about it, then just plopped down and would crawl.
However, when we were at Mom-Mom's this past Saturday Logan saw something that Renae had and left my hands and took two very definitive steps to her before he realized what he was doing and just lunged for Renae with his hands out to grab her. We both thought the same thing and immediately looked up at each other with much excitement.
For the next part I need to mix a little flashback in with what happened on Sunday morning. When I am home and run upstairs, Logan will go the bottom stair and grunt and sometimes let out some cries to get my attention. I will come down to him and show him how to lift his legs up on the stairs and we'll climb the "mountain" together. Well, on Saturday night that happened...and so I helped Logan climb up the stairs to his bedroom where we played for a couple hours. On Sunday morning I am heading up to get my clothes laid out and I hear Renae calling for me to come to the stairs. There is the little guy on the third step...and he climbed the entire stair case to the top (with a little bribery) and then shut the safety gate.
That only leads into Monday morning...we were playing with Logan because I was off of work. And he took three very strong and definitive steps from Renae to me. We tried to get him to do it a couple more times with some success...and then we attempted to catch it on video.
