He Will Walk When He’s Ready

“Is he walking yet?”

I immediately gave a long-winded response, probably 5 sentences longer than was expected.

I didn’t realize until about a minute after the conversation was over where I thought to myself, “Why did you even go there?”

I could have simply smiled and answered, “No, not yet,” but instead I had to share everything else he is doing as if it was an issue he’s not yet walking at 12 months.

My older son was walking, practically sprinting, four months earlier and my older 3 daughters, everything is blurry to be quite honest; but I’m pretty sure they were all walking by 12 months.

Maybe it’s because I baby him too much, and if I’m not holding him his Daddy or older four siblings have him scooped up.

Are we holding him too much? Are we inadvertently setting him back?

He will walk when he’s ready, I have to remind myself.

Then like the true panicky mother in me, I automatically go to, “Maybe something is wrong with his legs or his muscles aren’t strong enough?”

No, he holds onto the furniture and cruises so well. He likewise zooms around the house in his walker. Not to mention he will stand alone, unassisted, with such sturdy legs unwavering.

He will walk when he’s ready.

So when a friend of mine who hadn’t seen us for quite some time, asked me the simple, ever so common question, “Is he walking yet?” I felt the need to almost get defensive.

Not towards her at all, but rather on behalf of my son.

Let it go, let him go on his timeline. He will walk when he’s ready.
