I forgot what an appropriate term, baby steps is. Owen has started taking baby steps. He has been standing up in the middle of the room for a couple weeks, but a few days ago he decided to take a few steps. He is more apt to do it when he has something in his hands, but he will also go from the table to the couch or one stool to the other. He won't go from person to person. If you try to encourage him to walk, he sits down every time, but if you aren't paying attention or if you hand him something while he is standing off he goes. I finally caught a little of it on video. I'm so happy he took his first steps before Ben left, however I probably won't be happy that he's running by ten months, I'm never going to get anything accomplished now.
