ATLANTA, Georgia–

A 2-year-old double amputee was incredibly confident while taking a walk for the first time on his new prosthetics.

Kayden’s mom, Nikki, uploaded a video of his first stroll to YouTube on July 4.

After a shaky first few steps with some helping hands and the aid of a walker, Kayden starts to say over and over, “I got it. I got it.”

Kayden had a defect that led to him being born some of his organs outside of his body, according to his mother, and doctors put low odds on his survival.

His right foot and left leg had to be amputated because of complications during his mom’s pregnancy.

But Kayden has got it.

His family is reportedly working on a book about his extraordinary case in the hopes of helping pay off his medical expenses.
