11:33 pm - All The Happy Occasions !
So, in the space of a week, Bub has turned 6 months old, I've had a birthday, and rwrylsin and I have celebrated 9 years of marriage. 9 years ! Feels much less than that :)

Anyway, things are generally going well in the land of Bub, and pretty good for us too. He even sometimes randomly sleeps through the night !

I keep seeing people saying LJ is dead ... and then I had to go to skip=100 to catch up after a day off reading ... not so dead, I'd say !
(says the person who posted once in August, and probably once for September :-) )

I was going to post a poll, too, but I'll just do the lazy version:

When did you start to crawl ? (or did you skip crawling, and roll / scoot / walk instead ?)

When did you start to walk ? (... or whatever means of getting around you use as an adult)

(feel free to also answer for any kids you may have too)

Congrats on all the anniversaries. :-)

I don't know if my parents have ever told me when I crawled, but I walked late - after 12 months I think. Must be an older child thing because Erin didn't crawl until she was about 8 months old, and started pulling herself up onto her feet around 12 months, with full-on walking a few months after.

Liam, on the other hand, was dying to get on the move. He was crawling before six months and standing up at 8 months. He wouldn't let go and walk unaided until he was 12 months old though. He was tiny - he was a small baby anyway, and grew slowly - and he looked so cute, this tiny little red-headed boy rushing about.

Ashwyn was nearly as quick as Liam. I don't remember him crawling much - I think he started it latish but then started standing up around 9 months and decided being higher up was much more interesting.

So even with more or less the same genetic material to work with, the variation can be quite substantial. Also I have a brother who never crawled but moved around sitting upright and scooting about on his bum (or his potty - the soundtrack of my childhood is that potty scraping across the lino). So you know pretty much anything can happen....
