Xavier King walks 6 feet before he’s even learnt to crawl
Every baby's first steps are an exciting milestone but one baby has astonished his parents by learning to walk at just 6 months old.Xavier King hadn't even learnt to crawl properly when he amazed his parents, Mary and David, by getting to his feet and taking a few steps at their home in Cambridge."It was such a shock, we couldn't believe it," said first-time mum, Mary. I never thought he'd be walking at 6 months, most children don't until they're a year old. It was amazing when he first got up and started putting one leg in front of the other."Xavier, who is now 7 months, was born weighing 9lb 1oz and by 3 months he was already sitting up unaided and can now walk 6 feet without help."I think using the bouncy chair has built up the muscles in his legs," says his mum who has bought Xavier a playpen to stop him getting up to any mischief!Did your baby start walking early?

Jack sat up at 3 1/2 mnths and then that was it! he didnt do anything else, then a week before he was one he crawled and two weeks later he stood up and walked! He only now talks!
Lola on the other hand, sat up at 4mnths, moved not crawled at 5, crawled properly 6-7mnths, first words by 11mnths, walked at 13mnths. Now shes running around saying Peppa pig mummmeeee! well not right now but most of the day!
Most of mine sat around six months,except Matilda and Merlin.Matilda was about 9/10 months to sit.We're still waiting for Merlin,at nearly nine months.My earliest walking was Erin,at ten months.Harry was18 months,Matilda was 17 months.Harry bumshuffled at 11 months and only crawled long after he could walk.The others all crawled aroungd 8/9 months.Matilda was n't crawling till 10 months cos she roll.Erin was crawling at 5 months though,long before the others,and feeding herself with a spoon at 9 months.
Mine all talked early,they've learnt their colours and shapes early.Harry was reading numbers by 2.Whirly could read her alphabet at just over 2,so they were all doing other things.
I think each child is an individual and they all do different things in a different order at whatever age they're ready.Merlin only learnt to roll over a couple of weeks ago.He's not crawling yet,he barely sits for more that a moment and is totally clueless about feeding himself.I'm sure he'll do it all in his own time
Walking at 6 months though is very early,you just wouldn't be expecting it.It was the climbing that followed with Erin that was the biggest worry,cos at that age they just have no idea of danger.
