I'm counting today as the first steps because I witnessed it within my own eyes plus it makes for a great story since it was her birthday party!!...DH says she took 2 steps to him a few weeks ago, but I don't believe him:)
Today at Aerin's birthday party, she took 3 steps and walked right into Amy's (aka Californiafrog and HC's mom) arms:) Andrea (delta21) was our other witness.
She's not fully walking but she is very very close!!
