Baby Takes First Steps, Then Family Dog Steals Her Thunder (VIDEO)

LOL 85

baby first steps

OMG. You know when you see something and say, "Wow. You just can't make this stuff up"? Yeah, this is one of those times.

Watching a baby take his or her first steps is one of the most exciting moments in a parent's life, and naturally, most of us do our best to capture the milestone on video if at all possible.

But one mom has a whole other reason besides capturing the moment on film to remind her of the very first time her daughter walked, because immediately after she took her first steps, the dog pooped on the floor, and the baby fell into the poop.

No, I'm not kidding. And no, there's really no other polite way of describing what went down. Take a look.


OMG!!! Are you literally rolling on the floor laughing? (Preferably not in your pet's excrement.)

Out of all the possible scenarios to follow your baby finally walking -- somehow I'm guessing falling directly into dog poop never crossed this mom's mind.

I can still remember vividly the day my own son first walked. It was in our current house, in our playroom -- and even though he only took two or three steps towards me before toppling over, the look of pride and contentment on his face is one I'll never forget as long as I live.

And if he'd wound up with dog poop stuck to his clothes directly afterward? I'd like to think I would've laughed it off the same way this little girl's mom did. After all, having a good sense of humor is pretty much essential when it comes to parenthood anyway, right?

Has your baby taken his/her first steps yet?

i want to know why the person filming didnt stop the dog from pooping on the floor or why they didnt go to cleanit up right away.

@ Sarah - once the dog's started going, there's pretty much no stopping him... and the time between the dog walking away and the kid falling was LITERALLY 2 seconds.  Lighten up!  Sh*t happens... LOL

The baby was cute but why did it take them so long to get her off the poop. I guess they were to busy laughing. smh

It looked like they didn't care that their dog just pooped next to the baby on the carpet and they kept filming hoping the baby would fall.  That was gross.  They had enough time to run over and pick up the baby or the dog.
