  • DHs mom swears her hair turned gray overnight when she had my hubby. She was in her late 40s and he was her surprise baby. I've seen pictures and it's not entirely true, but it did turn from black to white in about 4 years.

  • Yes. When my son was 8 months old he simply got up and walked from the sofa that he was leaning against over to the chair! It was only about 4 feet, but he wobbled over there on his own, and inside a week he was EVERYWHERE!

  • My son was 9 months and was playing by my bil on the couch. I was sitting in the middle of the family room and my son just let go and walked right over to me. Within like 3 days he was walking all over. Since he walked that first time 2 days after x-mas all his walking/ push toys he got for x-mas was a waste, but that was my best gift seeing my son walk for the first time (right to me!)

  • My son at 9 months old crawled out of his crib and walked into our bedroom. It freaked us out since he has been cruising furniture but was not walking yet. He was running a few days later and we had to put him in a big boy bed so he did not get hurt climbing out.

  • My son pretty much did that. He took his first step around 9 months old and then one day when he was 10 1/2 months he just stood up from a sitting position on the ground and started walking. I actually have pictures of it because I happened to be using the camera at the time. We were on the front porch (which is gated) and I was taking pictures of my dd who was 2 and I turned around to get a picture of him and he just stood up and walked over to the edge of the porch to watch her. A week later he was running through the house.

  • When my first dd was 9 mo and maybe a week, my hubby and I realized that although she LOVED to "walk" with us (holding one or both of our hands) we didn't know if she could do it on her own. So we sat down on the floor with her between us and *called* her- she stood up and walked to one ( we can't remember who) of us! Who knows how long she was able to do that before we asked her to do it!! 2nd dd walked at same age exactly if you account for the fact that one was one week late and the other two...

  • My daughter was about 9 months old when she started walking. I had a mini snickers in my hand that she wanted. I decided to see if she could walk a few steps, so I put her a few feet in front of me and I held on to the snickers. She walk to me, with no problem. It was all down hill after that. She literally just took off, walking around like she had been doing it for a while. Everyone was in complete shock when they saw her.
