But after 2-3 weeks without walking, he decided to show off for me tonight! I'm really hoping he'll stick to it this time.

Anyone's LO walking or super close? I know in another Feb. group that I'm in, we have quite a few walkers and cruisers.

Winter is constantly pulling to standing, and has just started to cruise or walk behind toys she can push. By just started, she's done it twice. It's very weird to me. Pulling up seems normal, but cruising is earlyish. Honestly, anything on the early or late side scares me.

That's so strange about a lot of walkers. I cannot remember being in the same room with any baby walking at 8 months. 10, sure, but 8 is very early. You just happened upon a group of early kids. lol There are probably a few pulling up now, but it seems like most here are working on crawling.

Ahhh. Yeah that group as about 4 walkers and tons of cruisers. Laz started at 7 months but quit shortly after. Sounds like your little cruiser will be walking in no time!

Wow! He is so advanced!

She has been pulling up for a couple months now and cruising a tiny but but not much.

Congrats on your pregnancy! It's been a while since I've logged in here so I didn't see.

Why does anything early scare you?

Because of my first. She never babbled, just came out with words. By five months, she had three words. Almost twenty by one year, and before a year she was potty trained. She lagged slightly on her motor skills by a couple months for each. The outcome of this: autism. My brother is mildly autistic with severe adhd. Running by seven months! Potty trained before eighteen.

I just like average. lol No early rolling, my brother started rolling over regularly before one month. No sentences by eight months, we've been through that as well. My oldest daughter waves bye bye now like an infant. She used to use a regular voice, like you or me, "Goodbye." No funky waving where she looked at her own hand. Just so advanced. She is still in diapers now, and she's closer to five than four.

I know he will more than likely turn out normal. I've just had more than my share of it. Advanced is terrifying. So is delayed.

I'm with you, Arwen -- I get scared whenever Robby hits a milestone before or after the book said he would. When he was cruising before he could go from crawling to sitting, I thought, "OMG, this is it." When you know everything that can go wrong (and/or have been through it going wrong), you worry like crazy.

Robby is cruising like a maniac, but he has never been satisfied with holding still (I hope it's not adhd!). He is not really ready to walk yet, though -- his balance needs some work first!

Interesting, I didn't know that about autism. I always just heard if kids were sitting/walking/crawling early it could mean they will be more athletic but I have no experience with autism.

Oh, they are! My baby brother is GIFTED when it comes to sports. He could have gone to the majors in baseball. He easily taught himself tumbling, and he is really strong. However, like a lot of ADHD people, he can't keep out of prison. Self control issues. His is alcoholism.

I have a friend whose first child walked by 8.5 months. (Lives a few hours away so I never saw that.) She's in education, and that's the only child she's seen do it that early. By 17 months, the girl could climb onto my ottomans and leap off landing perfectly on her feet. it was the wildest thing to see. She's not ADHD, though. She's a really well behaved little girl now. Really coordinated one, and so smart.

I'm not lucky enough to get that. Knowing my track record, I'd get my brother and never have any grandchildren cause she'd be spending her adulthood in prison!
