I actually DO have a friend whose little boy JUST started walking, he is 19 months old. No worries my dear, she's so stinking cute she knows she doesn't NEED to walk yet. ;)


My daughter (Ella) was also a "late walker". She took her first step on her own at 16 months, but was still not walking until 17 months. And it was incredibly frustrating as a mother to watch other children cruising around the playground at well under a year old. But as I've come to realize, Ella is one of those children who will only do something when she's good and ready. Every milestone has been that way with her, including potty training. No matter how much encouragement Mommy gives her, if she doesn't want to do it...it ain't gonna happen:) And as I struggle with such a strong personality now (I could tell story after story), I hope she carries these same personality traits into adulthood, making her a very strong and independent woman someday.


Thanks, Sarah, for the props on my daughter. I think she's pretty cute too and I guess I just need to get over myself.



Did you ever know that you're my hero? And everything I wish I could be? And I can fly higher than an eagle because you are the wind beneath my wings.

GREAT point. I never thought of the independant woman thing. Thanks!

Miss you,


you should hear elizabeth and dillion and the other kids talking about tatum at the playdates as they cruise past her. I had to threaten to take away elizabeth's paci if she kept up that bad attitude. I told her Tatum is one of her bestest friends and stop being mean to her! I apologize for my bratty child!
Tatum we love you and we know you are perfectly capable of walking you just like to stress your momma out and see her fret! You are letting her know what is in store for when you are a teenager. Props to you tatum!


I'm going to have to open up a can of woop ass on Elizabeth and Dillon! :)


watch out for elizabeth's mom she is tough! Remember the threat with the racket???
