So here we are, Sammy is just about to be 16 months old and heâs walking. He took his first step two to three months back but as far as walking a decent distance, that started sometime last week. Since then heâs been on a mission. Itâs actually quite remarkable to watch the evolution.
In fact, the entire process has been rather surreal and amazing. Watching a child go from laying on their back all the time, to rolling over, to army crawling, to regular crawling and now the big oneâ¦walkingâ¦what a trip. Heâs also been saying real words and actually knows what they mean. He said things like âdadadadaâ or âmamamamaâ early on but to me first words are ones that are understood by the child.
He says things like hat, ball, mom, dad, and even pretty close to saying ânow whatâ. That one nouveaux casinos en ligne is pretty funny because he puts his hands up as if to ask the question, âNow what?â All of these markers are important for parents. They want to see their children developing normally obviously but itâs also just damn cute.
All of this leads me back to what Iâve said a hundred times, none of us are parenting the same way. Do what feels right for you and your child. We tend to listen too much to âexpertsâ but we also tend to listen too much to societal pressures. These pressures can come from TV, online, and even our own family and friends.
Just do what you want to do and regardless of when your kid walks or talks youâre going to love them no matter what. Worrying about the outside world will only make your days more miserable. Cheers to a new chapter!
