It's been over a month and Gino hasn't taken another step since lol! I'm beginning to wonder if he will EVER walk. I think he could if he wanted to. He walks now holding on to my one finger! He cruises on everything, the walls, the couch, and pushes a push car while walking behind it....Augh he's SO CLOSE and has been for a while now.

Re: my boy took his first step today!

He will get there! It does sound like he is able, and just unwilling. I know that can be terribly frustrating for you but he will let go when he is ready. How about if he was holding on with one finger and you were a couple steps away and held up a favorite book/toy/snack? Would that make him forget and go for it? Worth a shot. If not, hang in there. Before long you won't remember what it was like when he didn't walk!

Re: my boy took his first step today!

My mom says I was like that - could do it but didn't think I could. So one day instead of letting me hold onto her finger she held something in her hand ( I forget what exactly) and had me hold onto that. Then when I started walking she let go of the thing so only I had it and I didn't notice and kept going!

DFS was 18 months when he took his first steps. Now at 3, he is developmentally on target and about to exit PT.

Good luck mama! I hope your LO continues to progress and thrive! One day soon, he's going to take off running and surprise you!

That is very nice news for all of you; in fact this is first milestone in his life.
