YAY!!!!!! Oh, Christy, that is wonderful!! Give Elias a big hug from us!

When I first saw the title, I thought it was about age for a brief second ("no, that's not right, we KNOW how old he is!"), then it hit me, "I bet that's the number of steps he took!" I'm SO happy for you guys!! And you thought he was fairly mobile and getting into things now! =)

I apologize if I sound incoherent, it's part excitement, part exhaustion.

Hope you guys had a great weekend (in addition to FIVE!!!)!

Elias rocks!!!!! He looks so proud of himself! I remember when my son let go of the walker and took those first few steps, my heart felt like it would fly from my chest :) Great job, Elias!

Oh, I'm crying tears of joy as if it were my own child's first steps (which were only last summer at the age of 3yrs 8 mo). Just you wait...I'm telling you, Elias has fire in his belly and he is hungry to explore the world. He will find his way.

It's amazing this happened so close to your previous post! A coincidence or not ;-). There have been so many times that my son seems to have been willed to achieve a goal because I've just been so ready (OK, fit to burst!) for it. This very recently happened with his speaking skills.
We are off to get a second skin (similar to theratogs) next week for my son so I will continue to read with interest of your journey! Thanks for sharing. Reading blogs like yours is what's inspired me to finally start writing my own.

Wow *shaking head in wonder*.
This is fantastic news. I predict that some brain neurons that were maybe sleeping on the job are now firing away, chattering amongst themselves -- "WALKING! Yeah, walking! Let's get this boy WALKING!" Elias just had to wake them up! Yea!!!
