Is having an advanced child really a good thing?

Coltrane is walking. I mean walking. Across the room. To get to things like my soda and cell phone. That are sitting next to each other. Bad Mommy!
It really is amazing to watch a baby, sorry, toddler, learn and develop daily. Just last week he was tentatively taking a step or two before making use of his diaper cushioned butt. Now he's doing his best Frankenstein impression from one side of the living room to the other. Unless, of course, something gets in his way. He hasn't figured out how to get around things.
So a walking 10-month-old who also thinks it's hilarious when you say, no. And it is REALLY gut busting if you yell NO! I am learning that patience is truly a virtue.


  1. All of mine waited until a year to walk. Bet you didn't know you were so funny. Enjoy it, they grow up, turn 13, and mock you with love.

  2. Wait until he looks at you, goes and does something he KNOWS he's not supposed to do, and laughs. May I remind you that Zachary's not much older. LOL I thought I had TIME!! Be warned. :)

  3. I hadn't visited your blog in AGES, and I was curious about how things were going with CJ. Holy cow! You had another baby!! Congratulations on your now even larger family!
