Learning to Walk

So Miles is 13 1/2 months old now and he still isn't walking with consistency. Wanting to have the most wonderful child ever who excels at everything, this is very perplexing. Anyway, we took this video about a week ago where I am trying to encourage Miles to start walking. Since this video was shot, he has made leaps and bounds in the walking department. It makes me realize that Miles has a little bit of my personality in him. When I saw him learning to crawl he attacked that task in the same way he is learning to walk. He studied it, watched others, learned all the steps individually, thought about it, and then feeling confident that he would succeed, he tries it. How do I know he does this, he has been pacing furniture since October, he has been practicing standing on his own for awhile, and he stood up with out the help of any furniture or people on Sunday. Next up will be a video of him walking on his own.
