He finally took off today! He just started walking like he's been doing it for weeks, when in fact he hasn't even wanted to try. I was pregnant with 9 other women at work and all their babies have been walking for months, so it seemed I heard that question on a daily basis, "is he walking yet?". Tomorrow I can answer "YES!, now leave me alone!"
We are still waiting here ds is almost 16 months. He stood alone yesterday so hopefully we are getting close! I know what you mean about other people - one friend even gives me advice every time I talk to her. She thinks that late walkers are a "problem!" UGGGG! I say he will walk when he is ready!
Oh wait....that's not all, they tell me he's not walking because I hold him all the time! I crack up....I don't know, I just think that's funny. Could be true, but so what? I like holding him "all the time".
I know just how you feel. My little guy walked just a few days before his 14-month mark and it seemed like people were asking all the time when he would walk. And every other kid we met started walking at 12 months or sooner.
Congratulations! Now, batton down the hatches (and the Christmas tree, hee hee)!
See, I bet your DS wasn't going to walk unless he could do it "perfectly". Is he a talker? I knowa couple whose DD started walking at 18 mos and she was a big talker. Apparently her timetable was to master talking 1st!
NM, he says 2 words! I think he's like Curious said, he's not going to do it until he does it well. That's exactly what has happened.....he just started walking a few days ago and he hasn't fallen much and is practically running.
