Just wondering how many LOs are walking at this stage, my LO is 8 months old. He can pull himself to a stand and is starting to walk along with furniture. I'm thinking it'll be a matter of months now! :D
My girl is 10.5 months old and no walking. Cruising and just now trying to stand one her own (for a few seconds only).
My son walked at 10 months and the little boy I babysit for started at 9 months.
I think the average age to start walking is around 13/14 months so anything earlier then that is pretty good. My niece only just started really walking a couple weeks ago and she is just over 15 months. She could take a step or two but didn't really walk until now. My oldest didnt walk until almost 13 months and my youngest (11 months) is just now starting to walk pushing things but no solo steps and I am fine with that! She's been crusing around furniture for a month or so and pulling herself up for about the same amount of time, but I'm in no hurry to get her to walk.

Ectopic pregnancy discovered November 6, 2012 at 6 weeks
Started our exploration into the world of international adoption June 2012. We have no idea what this is going to look like but we are excited to find out!
Thanks for all of your feedback ladies! (: I am proud of LO for where he is!
The only thing I'm looking forward to him walking is that I won't have to carry him around every single place. He will be able to walk short trips that'll be nice (:
I was surprised he is learning so fast because I didn't start walking on my own until 19 months old!!!
He's been pulling up to stand since about 7m and is now cruising along furniture and can walk with a push toy. He is starting to stand independently but no steps yet. I don't think it will be too much longer- he has no fear and loves to try to stand on his own. Once he gains some balance I know he will be off & walking.
DD started standing independently at 14m and took her first steps a week shy of 16m. She has a very cautious personality.
Baby O started walking at 9 1/2 months. He is crazy. Now he runs around. It is sad because I feel like he sped through the baby stage
I'm really worried ladies! I think he's going to be walking sooner than I've been thining!!!!
Lol today he was pulling himself up to a stand over and over again like it was nothing and no big deal! Well he just gets stronger everyday of course (:
He's been cruising more and trying to get into everything, and some of the things he has to stand up to reach on his baby-shelves! It's nuts, I get the feeling he's less than a couple months from walking... O.o
I'm just kidding, I'm not really worried though, I'm excited (: but I know he's just going to be an even bigger handful ha ha ;)
footnotegirl:It can be all over the place. LO just started crawling this week at 10 months. She's been focussing on other things. So no, she's not walking nor even pulling herself up. Sometimes I find it frustrating, since the other infant at daycare is 1 week younger than her and has been cruising around the furniture for almost a month now. But they're both well within the normal range.
Hey there! Just wanted to letcha know that my LO at 9 months (in a cpl days) isn't crawling yet. Isn't near pulling herself up either. I actually find it refreshing to read what you've written, because it seems like everyone around me has a crawler.
