Because he did! DH and I went on vacation two weeks ago, and Ian stayed with my mom. He was taking about 5-7 steps at a time when we left, and he walked about 30 feet to us as we exited the security gate at the airport coming home! Now he can walk from room to room as long as he doesn't fall, and we are working on standing up from the middle of the floor so he can get right back up if he does fall. He has worked so hard to get here, and he is just so proud of himself. It's been fun to watch. Gooooo Ian!
