Milestone Moment: First Steps!

Nate took his first unassisted steps yesterday, October 29, 2011!  Nate was "helping" Dad load the dishwasher, while I was standing back watching the cuteness.  They closed the dishwasher, and Nate stood with his hand against it.  Then Dad bent down and beckoned Nate to walk to him.  Low and behold, Nate let go of the dishwasher and toddled three steps into Daddy's open arms.  Like any adoring mom, I then went nuts!  It was so surreal seeing him take actual steps on his own and I couldn't believe what I was seeing.  He is getting to be such a big boy!  No more steps yet since then, although we've seen him stand on his own for a couple of seconds a few times.  We are getting there!  Little guy is so good at crawling, crusing and climbing that I think it will be a slower transition to walking...but, once he realizes what he can do without hands holding onto something, WATCH OUT!
