Hi, my boy has been cruising for ages now and we're sure he can walk (actually took some steps alone today), he just hasn't been interested. He's much happier climbing and I mean, everywhere and all the time. Up on a table in the study, up on the record crates on top of that, then up on the desk. He can get into his own highchair, no problem. The only way is up, any chance he gets, all over the furniture. He's always been good getting up and down carefully and we'd never leave him climbing alone, but we can't stop him!! I've asked other mums and so far no-one has had the same experience. Many have commented on his strength and he can hold himself up off the ground by his arms for longer than I could quite easily when trying to climb something. Yesterday he was climbing on the couch and deliberately falling off backwards onto his fold out couch mattress. His Dad and I aren't gymnasts, so I just thought this was natural till I couldn't find any similar tales. Now I worry that he's gonna be even more fearless than the average kid and I'm already terrified. Somebody please tell me this sounds familiar?
