Adorable 8-month-old melts hearts and goes viral with video of his first steps

If you have ever gone through the joys of parenthood, this story might bring back a few cherished memories. In a world of technology, not a moment of a child’s growth is forgotten. This sweet video of a young eight-month-old from 2016 has stolen hearts across the internet.

Babies typically begin taking their first steps from nine to fifteen months. Of course, the exact age varies per child, but the average age is twelve months. It is normal to see a toddler standing up and wobbling about before actually walking. One child, however, went straight into walking at the mere age of eight months old.

Dressed in an adorable button-down shirt that is tucked into his pants, he seems to know perfectly well what he is doing. Most toddlers need support during their first steps, but not this little man. He walks effortlessly without the assistance of his parents or any support.

His face has a determined look and you can tell that he is focusing all of his efforts on walking. He stares down at his feet as he walks forward and somehow gets the hang of it. He is distracted by the camera focused on him for a little while, but eventually gets back on track and continues walking again. During his entire walk, he does not stumble or fall even once.

The infant has strong and well-developed muscles for someone so young and his legs, although small, easily support his weight. The determined look on his face resembles one you might see on an athlete’s face. One can only imagine what athletic wonders this toddler might achieve in the future.

After he gets the hang of walking, it is as if he does not want to stop. This new form of mobility welcomes a world of opportunities for exploration and he takes full advantage of it. When babies first learn how to walk, they function on instinct, but it is also common to sometimes alternate between walking and crawling. Babies may also not know how to stop the forward momentum, which ends up with a baby’s fair share of falling. Some parents may even have footage of their children running into objects and falling, but getting up and continuing it all over again.

You can usually tell when a child is about to take his first steps. There are various signs to look out for, including pulling themselves up onto furniture or attempting to move around as much as they can. Soon after they begin to move around on their own, they will begin taking their first steps. This is when parents have to worry about baby-proofing their homes. Toddlers know no bounds when it comes to exploration and sometimes, they can even run into a little trouble in their adventures.

This little guy is impressive because of his young age. Babies his age are still in the crawling phase or stumbling while trying to walk. The best thing you can do with your child is to encourage him/her. Providing your child with support and compliments can motivate him/her to do amazing things.

While this little boy has accomplished something amazing, the video has also captured hearts due to his looks and sense of style. He could very well be a model for an infant clothing line, or maybe even the face of a parenting magazine. Regardless, one thing is for certain: this child knows how to work a photo.
