I have talked before about milestones and how it is different when you have a child with Down Syndrome. There is a magical chart that shows when children with Down Syndrome roll, sit, walk, talk, etc. So the good news as a mom is you know it is going to happen later than a typical child you know it will be around 2 years old. That doesn't mean you understand just how long walking takes. David pulled to stand at 18 months old, cruising furniture by 21 months old, and he has been taking a few steps since then. Now at 26 months, he still butt scoots alot, he will walk anywhere if I hold his hand, but just this week he started walking farther on his own. Just maybe we are approaching a true walker. But honestly, on David time, full time walking could be next week or in 6 more months. For now I wanted to share this video with you of him walking (and a little blurb of "thumbs up", during a tube feed on our last road trip).
