Well, today Garty did it. He stood up all by himself. He was sitting in the middle of the kitchen floor and just got up and stood all by himself without holding on to anything. He didn't even look unsteady for the 5 seconds or less that he stood there. (Of course, it seemed like he stood for at least a minute as we watched in awe.) Then he did it again almost immediately. Later in the day, he was holding on to Mommy's legs, let go, and stood a bit before sitting back down. We've seen him sort of stand a few times, but this was definitely the real thing. He'll be running after Joshua and Patience and tackling them before we know it.
