A baby's first steps are among a parent's most precious moments in childrearing -- all the tumbles and fails are an adorable part of the learning process, and there's nothing like the look on a child's face when they finally do it on their own.
Dad Nick Turner captured his daughter Lucy's pitfalls and triumphs on camera in a compilation video he posted to YouTube last week. A rosy-cheeked, resilient Lucy is shown gradually learning to balance on her own two feet, then stumbling, then getting back up and trying again.
Ultimately, little Lucy gets the hang of it with some, ahem, "help" from her older siblings. It's a beautiful slice of life.
