He's growing up!

Blue Eyes turned 15 months old today! Last weekend we took his binky (pacifier) away from him. For good. No more binks in this house! I can happily say that he is now 100% bink free!

But the most exciting news is that HE WALKED! You may remember in a few previous posts how I was worried that he still was not walking even though he was almost 15 months old. Well today he walked! I was talking on the phone to my mom and had told her that any day he was going to take his first steps. Not 5 minutes later he did! He walked from Dad to Mom, with Grandma on the speaker phone saying "hi" to him. Such a proud mommy moment!

You know they say the average age to walk is between 9 months and 15 months. I guess he was waiting till exactly 15 months just to be out side of the norm. Silly kid! Now I can proudly say, yes he can walk! Ahhh. I'm still so very excited for him!

Just some side info. Mr. Destructo walked exactly on his 9 month birthday and Blue Eyes walked exactly on his 15 month birthday! Interesting.


  1. Happy 15 months....and yay for walking

  2. I think the subsequent kids aren't as motivated to walk, since they have their parents and their siblings to cater to them. And there's nothing wrong with that :) I have four children, and my baby will be 15 mos next week, and she is just starting to walk now. Even though she *can* walk a bit, she still prefers not to. Her brothers all walked between 9-12 months. She's just taking her sweet old time, but I'm sure she'll get there eventually!

    Fun blog! I too have a hectic, happy home :) Love the title.
