At two days past 17 months old, chubby kid finally decided to let go of holding on to walls and furniture and began to take a few cautious steps. She is still rather unsteady and often falls on her bottom but luckily the fall is cushioned by her diapers.
Lately, she moves around more often and but still crawls most of the time. She also refuses to stand and move around in unfamiliar places but will happily do so when at home. So big size but so timid.
Anyway, I feel very excited to see her take her first few steps. It was kind of cute and I hope that by 18 months old, which is about three weeks away, she will be able to walk confidently on her own without falling.
