On September 12, 2012, at roughly 8:30 p.m., this happened.
My baby, y’all. My baby walked. He walked a lot. His longest streak was around 10 steps. He even turned himself around and walked in the opposite direction.
This is terrifying. I don’t think I’m ready for this. I thought I had more time. Cole didn’t walk until he was a few days shy of 13 months. Cannon’s first birthday is on Sunday. And I have in no way been encouraging him to walk. If he pulls up on something I usually push him back down. Crawling is good! Crawling is fun! Don’t we love to crawl!
Didn’t work. Obviously.
I just want my baby to be a baby a little while longer. I’m already having to deal with him turning 1 on Sunday and his first birthday party on Saturday. And now I have to come to terms with him starting to walk. It’s just too much.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go cry into my cup of coffee.
