Six-month-old Xavier King is a VIB (Very Important Baby), with places to go, people to see, things to do — and, tired of relying on his ol’ parents to transport him to these places, he decided to stand up and WALK ALL BY HIMSELF.
As you can tell from that awesome picture, Xavier is all, “Get out of my way, bitches! Wobbly baby coming through…!”
Xavier, who can walk up to six feet on his own, also started sitting up on his own at three months — something my six-month-old still hasn’t mastered — and is obviously on his way to competing in decathlons by the time he’s nine months old.
“It was such a shock. We couldn’t believe it,” said Xavier’s mother Mary, 30, of Cambridge, England about her boy’s advanced moves.
“I never thought for one moment he would be walking at six months. Most children don’t until they are a year old. . . It was just amazing when he got up and started putting one leg in front of the other. The only problem now is that I can’t leave him alone so have had to buy a play pen so he doesn’t get into any mischief.”
Mischief? A baby? I can’t imagine.
My mom says I started walking at the relatively young age of 10 months — but then I could barely talk, preferring to communicate by GRUNT, until I was about five years old, which pretty much negated any bragging rights she may have earned from my advanced footwork. Eeehhh moooohhhh! (Translation: Sorry, Mom!)
