On the 26th Griff and I took turns helping Xander to stand and then encouraging him to take 2-3 wobbly steps toward us. Tonight he surprised all of us by suddenly just letting go of the ottoman and stepping out on his own! Over the course of a couple of hours he went from barely making 2 steps to being able to stagger 10 steps or more across 5 feet of space or so.
Early on in the toddling festivities, I caught a few video clips, the first of which is posted below. Go to Dropshots to see the other two clips of Xander, and a whopping four clips of his brothers getting into the "take a video of me!" act, including breakdancing and a performance by Griff of the Batman version of Jingle Bells.
