I really praise God for allowing Rebekah to start walking way before she turns 10 months old. Now at 10 months old, she is able to take more than 10 steps. The best walking moment so far was when she “chased” after her daddy the moment she sees her 2.5yo brother runs to the door to greet his daddy upon his arrival home from work. That was the first time she walked all by herself (she stood up by herself and walk without me asking her too) and also more than 20 steps.
Being the 5th child, she gets to spend her time on the floor more than in my arm. She did not start crawling faster than a normal baby. She started crawling about 8mo but once she can crawl, she does not want to sit in the walker anymore so we just let her roam freely on the floor. The more she crawls, the stronger her legs grow. At the same time, she could pull herself up by holding onto the furniture and walk with support. Seeing her brothers and sisters running around the house is another motivation for her to walk. At times she forgotten that she can’t run, let even walk. She stood up, took her first step (to chase after her bro) then fall on her knees.
