thats very good for just stretching on your own. Keep on stretching and youll have your feet all the way down. i should really work on my own flexability im no where near that good.

Just be sure that you do exercises for strength, or the nice results you have achieved could easily end in an injury. (Yes, I know I stress this to everyone, but it's really important, we don't want more people than neccesary with broken bones in their spine, muscles that give up, etc.)

Btw; are you able to put your heels on the ground as well? It will give you a better feeling of support ;)

Sometimes my heels touch the floor, but I need to be more flexy before i do that else I fall over lol. My goals are to be able to balance in an elbow stand, do a triple fold, and touch my ankles in a bridge. I'm guessing it'll take about 8 months to do lol.

I'm sorry to say this, but a triple fold will take much longer time, and not everybody are able to do it. It requires much more flexibility than people seem to think, your head needs to be able to touch your thigh (or preferably bottom).
An elbow stand should be easy to accomplish for you even now, but that is more about your strength, so do a lot of exercises for back strength and sit-ups, so you are able to control the flexibility, not only bend yourself in various positions.
You should beable to touch your ankles in a bridge now, but only if you bend your knees as well. Same as before; strength strength strength.
