Raees has been crawling for a long time. If I recall correctly, he has been crawling for 4 months already. He didn't show much signs of walking. But once he did, he progressed quite fast!
It all started about a month back when he started standing on his own whenever he's on the bed or any surface that could cushion his fall. 2-3 weeks ago, he could walk quite well when his hand is held.
But just 2 nights before Hari Raya, he walked on his own at a distance of about 1.5 meters and stopped at my knee (I was seated). He then started clapping non-stop for I don't know how long. Clap, clap, clap - losing balance - hands on mommy - clap, clap, clap...this was repeated a number of times.
It was a BIG applause for a BIG achievement :)
