My son is considered advanced. His gross motor skills are amazing. So I'm wondering when he'll slow down and in what area(s). I'm guessing speech since that's the most likely but then again will he walk when he's closer to one? Both?
So my question is for the BTDT moms with kids that were hitting milestones really early. Did your child have delays in other areas? If so, what areas?
Alice started out slow, and really sped up. By one she had 15 words and told me when she needed to potty. Autism. Winter started fast and slowed down. She said her first word befor two months, rolled over exactly at three. But she is six months now, and a month behind Alice in sitting up alone all the time. Way behind in words! Alice had three of them at this point.
My sister's kids didn't walk till 2. All of them are unusually bright. They are really not normal smart.
Every kid is different. You never know what they will do. But many times they excel in one area and may lag more in another. Their focus might be on motor skills or verbal, but maybe not both. Like dd was a motor skills baby. Ds focuses more on verbal and social interaction.
My oldest was slow on speech and took him forever to walk. It took Daddy going to JRTC for a month for him to walk a few days after he left. My daughter was waiting on daddy or so I say. She is always so close to doing something like crawling my husband came home for R&R she was 10 months old.. The day he got home she started to crawl.. He says he taught her. Then after coming home from that deployment she was close to walking.. She waited for ever my oldest pushed her down a lot when she tried to walk around 6 months old. So she was 15 months when she walked. Olivia has been doing stuff sooner than the two of my oldest.
My first two were crawling at 6/7 months and walking by 9/10 months and sitting unassisted by 5months they always hit milestones early, they never slow down in fact they bounce all day long non stop haha now D he is my lazy baby and I'm loving it lol most would be worried that he hasn't rolled but I do not care and know he will when he feels like it (I do work with him just has no interest) having three 29 months apart I'm fine with him taking his time lol
