If you had told me years ago that my baby would start walking — and then almost immediately running — at 9 months old, I would have laughed in your face. There was nothing physically wrong with me — I walk just fine now — but I have always had a cautious personality, and it was evident even then. But my second son practically came out of the womb walking. He had a big brother to keep up with, and I swear he started army crawling at just a few weeks old.
By 4 months, he was getting up on all fours, rocking back and forth. At 5 months old, he was speed-crawling all around the house. Still, I was in total shock when he started pulling himself up onto the coffee table at 6 months, cruising around the furniture like a bandit at 7 months, and standing up on his own two feet at 8 months.
I seriously thought it was all a fluke. Here are the thoughts that went through my head when it finally dawned on me that my tiny little infant was about to take off on his own two feet:. The first stage of having an early walking is absolute denial. Once it happens, you realize that you must do some further babyproofing, pronto.
And after walking comes the most terrifying stage of all: climbing.
You better lock up your house. Climbing babies are insane.
Early walkers usually have pretty tenacious personalities and want to work on their newfound skills at every available opportunity. Going out on errands can turn into a real pain in the ass. I mean, your baby most certainly must be a genius — either that, or an alien from another planet. The whole early walking thing can definitely break your heart. You feel like your baby is growing up way too soon, and you want your baby to stay small, innocent, and still as long as humanly possible.
Luckily, you soon learn that even early walkers need their mommies just as much as other babies. You soon notice that your chunky-legged walking infant is a basically a monster compared to other babies — a Chucky doll brought to life. It was the shock more than anything that was notable. However, I do think there is something to be said for the personality of an early walker.
