That's why a Connecticut father, Peter Fragola, decided to start documenting all the funny things he's learning along the way.
Using the name, Carmine, Peter started a daddy blog titled: 'Sorry Son: Chronicles of a New Dad.'
One of our favorite entries involved Peter's idea to get a feel for the nervousness, excitement, and determination it takes for his 13-month-old, Jackson, to learn to walk.... by learning to walk on stilts.
At first, it seemed like Peter had it down as he took slow, wobbly steps with a little help from a friend.
But that was soon followed up with a little reality check.
Watch what happened when he got too confident and decided to let go of his friend's hands:
Not as easy as it looks!
Luckily, Peter says his little boy has a better sense of balance than his father as he learns to maneuver through the world.
And now his dad has a better sense of the pain of learning to walk again.
