still working on walking

Ardo has been "walking" for about a month now. His progress is moving at the pace of a snail. But he is getting better and walking further. I guess I just assumed once he started on two feet, he'd be running soon after. Ardo has definitely shown me he does everything on his terms. This mama is trying to be patient. But as a mother, it can be difficult. I want to see my baby take those next steps into toddler-hood. I remind myself daily that Ardo doesnt know "oh Im 16 months, I should be doing xyz". Hes just doing what he's doing. So to any mamas out there, who's tot isnt performing on command when a stranger asks YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

ps Can someone please explain to me when it became acceptable for people to go down a list of questions asking what your tot can do? My mom keeps trying to keep me sane by telling me no one means anything by it and its there way of making conversation. Which I guess I can understand, but sheesh, sometimes I feel as tho Im getting grilled by the po-po. (I dont actually know what it feels like but from watching Law & Order, its seems a lot like it)

Enjoy this video. The look Ardo has is so sweet, he's so proud of himself!

  1. Aw, what a cutie! And he IS walking, after all. Babies just do everything on their own terms. :)

  2. He's doing great, Sonya! This is how Michael started, and before I knew it, he's running away from me! Cherish them while you can still catch them.

  3. He's doing AWESOME. My 14 month old just started walking within the past couple of weeks so I know how you feel, but my pediatrician kept giving me the side-eye and assuring me he was fine and to stop listening to other moms buuuut it's so hard. As soon as Ethan turned 1, people were all "CAN HE WALK? CAN HE PLAY PIANO? CAN HE RECITE THE ALPHABET? WHY NOT? WHY CAN'T HE?!?!" Haha. Seriously, SO obnoxious.

    1. Thank you! Its so true. And once he can walk and talk, itll be is he potty trained? Does he cook for himself? Oh the questions are never ending. Your words sure do help tho!

  4. Found your site from Follow Me Wednesday. I think your little boy is adorable! They are so cute and loveable at that age. I think you should forget what everyone says and just keep your eyes focused on your family. He will progress at his own speed!

    I am following you now and would love it if you would do the same!
