It's official. Nathaniel can walk!
For a few days he's been taking two or three steps on his own but only if you place him facing you and encourage him to come to you, but nothing intentional of his own volition. However, today, after repeatedly taking 6 or 7 steps on his own towards us in the afternoon, this evening he merrily increased this to 8 and then 10 steps and then... he actively turned round away from what he was standing against to walk in a different direction to which he was facing. Shortly after, he then actively walked around Tassy, without holding on to get to where he wanted to go (in order to get to the oven - he current favourite appliance!)
We have no evidence to show yet (for those of you hoping for a video) so you'll have to take our word for it for now!
Let the increased mayhem commence...!
