Real Moms Share: When Did Baby Take First Steps?

Your baby’s first steps will probably be the most anticipated, most talked about, and most remembered moment of your baby’s early years. It’s one of those things that parents just can’t wait to happen for baby! There’s also the excitement of not knowing when baby will take his first steps and whether or not you’ll have your camera in-hand for the special moment. Right after your baby starts crawling, you’ll probably begin to wonder how much longer it’ll be before he starts to walk. My babies started walking at 10-months-old and 11-months-old, but here are some more real-life experiences from real moms who shared with me when their babies took their first steps.
