1 of mine walked at 9 mo, 1 at 10, 2 at 11 and 1 at 12.( The almost 9 mo old is almost standing unassisted and has been cruising from furniture to furniture for about a mo).
The 3 that walked earliest are my most athletic but the other 2 are athletic as well, one just doesn't choose to be (when he was younger he was very into sports but now that he's a young adult he doesn't do anything like that).

Re: Early walker poll

My early walkers are still only 2, but they don't seem any more athletic than my olders who walked later. I walked early and I'm definitely not athletic.

So, yup, I'm saying I don't think it makes a lick of a difference.

Re: Early walker poll

Most of mine are relatively early walkers, and, as far as I can tell, none of them are particularly athletic. I'm not sure I would know if they would be, however, since athleticism isn't something we specifically encourage in our home. They can run around outside and jump off the couch like nobody's business, but so far none of them have participated in organized sports.

My older daughter walked at 8 months, and she was a super chunk (almost 30 lbs), so I don't really think that is the case. She is now 5 and is pretty athletic, though it's kind of hard to tell because she is scared of trying new things.

My younger daughter walked at 9 months, and she's 2.5 now. It's hard to tell at this age, but she seems to be coordinated and athletic.

I started walking around a year old, and I am very athletic.

Re: Early walker poll

My DS walked at 10 mths. He loves to climb and seems strong/coordinated, but he is not "athletic". Now, he is only 3y7m, so that could change as he gets older, especially if we get him involved in more sports/activities. However, I doubt you'll find a correlation between walking age and athleticism.

Re: Early walker poll

My oldest walked at 9 months. She is the least athletic child I know.
My middle child walked at 14 months. He is semi athletic. Loves to climb son e he could crawl.
My youngest walked at 11 months. As he is now only 20 months I have no idea what he will do.

I read an article that said the timing of sitting, crawling, and walking had more to do with the development of the myelin covering the nerve endings than it did with intelligence or future athletic skills. It has been like 8+ years since I read that article so may not be remembering it correctly though.

Re: Early walker poll

DS1- Walked 10 months...VERY athletic and coordinated. Could throw a spiral with a mini football at 3, can dribble basketball between his legs at 5, could dribble a soccer ball while running at age 2.

DS2- Walked at 15 months...not so great on a big wheel at age 3, not super coordinated on playgrounds, not really a type of kid that seeks adventure, can bounce a ball to you but not too great at catching one. The cutest little musician you've ever seen!

I think a lot of it has to do with personality...it sounds crazy but I felt like I knew their personalities before they were even born.

Not crazy. DS1 was crazy active in the womb. Like sporadic and all over the place. It is strongly suspected he has ADHD and we are having him evaluated next week. DS2 was laid back and slept a lot. He really only got active when he heard DS1. The ultra sound tech couldn't even wake him up. Now he is pretty chill, sleeps about 13-15 hours a day and gets super wound up when Ds1 is around.
