Asa's not walking yet. he'll take a few steps here and there, but definitely not full time.
it shouldn't bother me, but it sorta does.
he passed all the other developmental milestones at both average and advanced rates.
all the books say anytime between 12 and 18 months is 'normal'... anything before that could be classified as advanced, and after there might be cause for concern.
he's 14 months old now and he's been crawling for 8 months!
i will say he's the leanest, meanest, crawling machine on the block... maybe he's just convinced he can get there quicker on his hands and knees (which is probably true).
i know there's absolutely nothing wrong with my boy... i was just really hoping i'd have a confident walker by the time his baby sister arrived (in 8 weeks!).
also, i'd like it a whole lot if his knees weren't getting scraped, shoes ruined, and hands dirty every time we were outside... which is A LOT!
i know i can expect these things to happen even when he is finally walking, but just not as much.
and, i thought climbing came after walking??
he's a pro at the stairs, has mastered all the sofas, can get into and out of his wagon a million times over, pushes kitchen chairs to the counter tops to help mama with breakfast, and climbing out of his crib is looking to be in the very near future (eeek!).
but, almost anytime i try to practice walking with him, he turns into a limp noodle and refuses... just struggling to get back to his knees.
i know the advice i'd give myself... stop worrying. you can't make him walk. be patient. he'll do it when he's ready. pray.
take your own advice already, Carey!
all this to say, i'd love your input/advice :)
oh, and here's the monkeyness i'm always referring to
