Walking at 8.5 Months

Ever since she was really little she has wanted to be on her feet. At four months she started insisting on standing up. By six months she was standing without help, just leaning onto whatever was available – coffee table, couch, etc. Around seven months she became obsessed with trying to walk and our lower backs were so sore from bending over. Fortunately by about eight months she had grown tall enough so that I can hold her hands while standing upright. At eight and a half months exactly, I captured this video of her taking a series of steps all on her own.
