When will Corban walk? $100 Contest!

When will Corban walk When will Corban walk? $100 Contest!

Summer is almost over for my girls but the adventure of learning to walk has just begun for my little 16 month old Corban! Yes, it’s that time! He’s been cruising along tables and climbing stairs for a few months but now is when the real fun of letting go begins. He has yet to take his first steps and rarely even stands for half a second on his own. His physical therapist guessed that he may be walking by now… but not quite yet! He can walk when pushing a little wheeled walker and he can walk when holding onto two strong hands. Our latest trick is trying to get him to walk with holding onto one strong hand. He seems to have this incredibly high pain tolerance we are all amazed at (even his physical therapist). He falls but barely whimpers and just keeps going! It must be a NICU thing. icon smile When will Corban walk? $100 Contest!

So… the question is, when will our little guy take his first 20 steps? The closest one to guess the right answer wins $100 off their next order. To enter this contest, just add a comment to this blog post.

Make your guess as soon as possible, because the entry closest to the exact day with the earliest time-stamp will win $100 off her next order at AmyAdele.com. Even if someone else already beat you to the punch with their guess, don’t hesitate to still enter. Every subsequent person who also guesses the right date will get 40% off their next order.

Here’s a clue… both my healthy (non-premature) girls didn’t walk until 18 months so don’t be too surprised Corban is taking his time, especially considering his early arrival.

  38. Sonya August 12, 2010 at 10:35 am #

    Love the labels we recently ordered! What a cutie pie Corbin is!! My guess is September 3!

    Aren’t kids so funny how they do things on their own time frame? My little one pretty was a later on (if you compare to others), didn’t get get 1st tooth until she was a year old & her top teeth came in first! Also, she wasn’t much of a babbler & when she finally started talking… it was these huge sentences & now she’s much further advanced language now than most other tots her age. They all do it on their own time frame, but that doesn’t make it any less worrisome for mom & dad!! :o)

  39. Melanie August 12, 2010 at 10:40 am #

    My guess would be Sept. 28. He is so beautiful! :o)

  53. Lisa August 12, 2010 at 12:06 pm #

    He is so cute I had to respond!!!
    Middle to end of November. Not knowing when Corban began crawling, I would say six months after he started crawling. I had premies and they crawled at about 13 months, and then walked at 19 months.

  54. Alison Leary August 12, 2010 at 12:30 pm #

    I am guessing Sept. 21st! Good Luck!! :)

    I will guess September 7, 2010…. Go, Corban, go!!!!

  67. Maddie Harrison August 12, 2010 at 5:43 pm #

    My guess is September 19th. I probably won’t win since that’s coming up quickly, but it’s a day with lots of luck in our house…the day our son received his brand new heart! He has a lot of medical problems, and by 14 months, he was walking puhing an IV pole. He didn’t walk on his own until 21 months, so I know that it can take some time!! Best of luck to Corban! Keep it up, and yes, pain tolerance is a NICU thing, but more importantly it’s a testament to how strong he is in body, mind, and soul! He’ll be running before you know it!!

  68. Colleen August 12, 2010 at 9:04 pm #

    My son was a 28 weeker and he didn’t walk until he was 18 months. My guess is…October 3rd.

  69. Mandy August 12, 2010 at 9:20 pm #

    My first guess is September 21st, but someone took that (didn’t know if we could choose the same days) so my guess is September 23.

    He is a cutie pie!

  70. Casey Coker August 12, 2010 at 9:29 pm #

    I will guess Oct 22! I love my recent order. THank you!

  79. Traci Walters August 13, 2010 at 9:06 am #

    Well, little Miss Joci didn’t walk until she was 17 months old… so I’m going with September 15th. I think he should walk on my birthday!!

  80. Farrah August 13, 2010 at 12:50 pm #

    I say Oct 19th! If we’re lucky that is the day we will have our twins. My son didn’t start walking until 16 months, and he’s now much sturdier… Thanks!

    Sounds like you’ve been on a wonderful adventure with your son. He just wants to keep you guessing…..:) The number nineteen is a special number in my family. We have five b-day’s in 5 months on the 19th. So, my guess is that as well. Good luck!

  94. Deine August 16, 2010 at 12:07 pm #

  96. Joe and Jean August 17, 2010 at 4:04 pm #

    Hi, Amy!

    Corban looks like he’s close to walking on his own. We’re guessing around the end of September. Let’s say September 26. We hope he continues to grow and grow healthy!

    Take care!

  97. Amanda August 19, 2010 at 8:05 am #

    I just found your website and I LOVE it! I will be making many purchases from you! Thanks for all the cute items!
    My guess as to when your son will be walking is, October 22 because that was one of the best days of my life. My baby girl was born!
    I’m sure he will be walking much sooner though! Good luck Corbin!

  98. Lindsey Morvan August 23, 2010 at 4:12 pm #

    I will guess that he will walk today (September 23rd).
