It's hard to say exactly when Damien's first steps were. Like everything else in his short life, Damien refuses to be pigeonholed into a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g! He technically took his first steps by his first birthday and was even caught cruising around the living room holding onto furniture. But it would be a very long time before he actually became an independent toddler. We're not sure if he just thought crawling was faster or safer or what - maybe even just decided he didn't want to do it so he didn't (which is more than possible in Damien's world). I'm happy to announce though that he finally is officially a toddler now, preferring the mode of two-legged ambulation over the four-legged crawl. It only took him 21 months to decide to do it.
Here is a video of him right in the middle of his transition from baby to toddler.
