Look Who's Walking

Snuggles, at 17 months, finally decided he was ready to walk! Hubby had caught him trying to take a few steps here and there, but, until now, he had refused to even stand for me. Now he is walking all over the place.

Here are a couple short videos from last Saturday night:


  1. Congrats!!
    I'm just glad I'm not the only one with late walkers!!
    let's just say that 16.5 - 17.5 has been the norm for 3 of the last 4!!
    I love how people say, "well, why does he need to walk? Everyone wants to carry him!"
    But it does get to the point where you're like, Okay - walk already! Enough with the dirty knees/pants!!! LOL

  2. Oh, I KNOW!!! I thought he would NEVER walk! He also didn't crawl till he was about a year, which I think had to do with how under weight he was for so long.

    In a way, I was thankful that he DID get some crawling time in... (It is so helpful in developing the part of their brain used for Auditory Processing) However, he is by FAR our latest walker.. The rest all walked by a year, with our oldest walking at 9 months!

    Now, if I could just get him to let me put SHOES on him! :)

  3. What a cutie! It's so fun to reach this milestone. I had a later one at 14 months and a real early one at 8 1/2 months! I don't remember when my oldest daughter walked; probably earlier for her! Have fun!

  4. That is so cute! I'm glad you posted it. I love the way that new walkers fall into the arms of their destination person (mom or dad) when they arrive. It's so trusting and is also funny. Now he'll REALLY be into mischief!

  5. What a cutie'
    Loved those videos
    Now the FUN begins

  6. Sweet baby! I love little baby steps and those proud grins they get! :)

  7. Punky was a late walker too (17 months). When they are ready...look out world!!! So cute.

  8. Oh my gosh!! He is so precious!! Way to go big boy!
