Default Is this normal? Parents?

I'm honestly very curious about my now 13 month old daughter. She's a little overweight, which I'm not worried about because my wife and I are both healthy, but she's also extremely STRONG. To the point where doctors trying to examine her have actually pointed it out and given up on things like looking into her nose. One time I was trying to hold her while the doctor checked her out and she got so mad that she arched her back and actually pushed back my arm while I was trying to hold the back of her head.

She's also done things like picking up 10lb+ of chains (while watching her mommy train in out garage), dragging a fully loaded diaper back across carpet with 1 arm, and she almost picked up an entire gallon of milk. She would have picked it up if it hadn't been wet. Back when she was 8 or 9 months she was already pushing around fridge packs of cans on the ground before we put them in the fridge.

She also really likes pushing things around. Usually it's loaded laundry baskets, but when we were visiting my parents back in Florida she actually pushed a stool around on a tile floor. This wouldn't have been a big deal, except for the fact that my wife was SITTING on the stool at the time!

Is this normal for a 1 year old? Do I have a genetic freak on my hands?

I vote for "genetic freak"

And be glad you do!!!!

But seriously, I know when my son was little, he was always off the "growth chart" the doctors used. He didnt even show up on it until he was about 8-9 yrs old, and even then he was at the "99 percentile"

I dont remember if he was noticable stronger at that young of an age. He was stronger than almost every kid once he started school.

I never asked if there was a "Strength Chart" the docs use....maybe ask about that?

The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

Thats awesome if you ask me! haha

I think its normal. My baby sister is 1 now, and she can do allot of what you said (apart from pushing around a stool with a fully grown woman sitting on it haha)

She's very strong for her age, but thats cool!

You may well have a genetic freak on your hands, She'll be squatting cars next year

"genetic freak" is the kid with the myostatin deficiency.



my niece used to do things like that -- things involving strength -- when she was that age. she's 7 now, and it's turned into a knack for sports. she can run fast, and she has performed well above average on every team she's been on. she doesn't even practice. when she was younger, i saw that she had noticeable quads and delts, and she could hang and do half pullups when she was 3 years old.
if i were you, i'd just make sure to encourage her to play catch, kick a soccer ball, or really just practice any kind of sport when the time comes. my sister and bro-in-law don't practice with my niece. they're couch potatoes. it's a real shame because she has talent, and it's going to waste.

I'm gonna say genetic freak, but obliviously in good way.

She sounds pretty darn strong, but the pushing thing is pretty common i think. She needs a tiny prowler now!

Believe me, I'm hoping she's a genetic freak! She squats all the time, even when she isn't picking something up. I'm hoping she gets the lifting bug. I know it's normal for them to want to do what their parents do at first, but of course then that tends to go to hell.

I'm sure she'll continue to be strong though. My wife and I are both strong and enjoy strength sports, but I'm only going to push her if she's into it.
