enjoy it, cos my daughter now has grown so fast i cannot keep up with her. she is learning to write her name and i just wish she could stay young.
and one good advice never use baby talk to your son, i always told her the right words and never the other way around. it teaches them good aswell. good luck and hope to hear how well he is doing.
have a good day.

It is not the age your child starts to walk, but their speech and vocab which can judge if they are going to be smart little people.
I was a tad concerned recently as my daughter is only starting to take her own steps by herself at the age of 14 months and read an article concerning this topic It stated more to the fact that early walkers can have problems with the development of their feet as the muscles may not have developed properly before they started walking.
Ella has a very wide vocab and has since a very early age. Now I am not worried about the walking issue as I'm just glad that I am starting to have conversations with her at such a young and precious age.
Our babies grow up so quickly, time spent loving and enjoying them outweighs anything else.
