5 days after Avery officially crawled she took her first steps by herself... She was so excited, she kept squealing and breathing heavy in her excitement. I'm sure she was dying to finally have the freedom to move. It is so much fun!!!! And now she is all over the place, she is able to stand up on her own without pulling up on anything... we are so proud of her. She seems like such a big girl now that she is walking.
