Most newborns don’t have much motor control – they lay in their cribs and may kick their feet and wave their arms, but they don’t do much of anything else. Until now!

In Portuguese, the woman is saying that it is a miracle! The baby girl is walking! Megan Heere, MD, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Temple University said that what we are witnessing is a normal reflex that all babies have (party pooper! LOL). The reflex will only last about a month, and then babies have to learn to walk.

Despite the logical explanation – it is still an amazing thing to watch a minutes-old baby walk!
