When do you consider your kid to be a walker? A few steps a few feet? DS is pretty much skipping crawling, has been cruising, and is only getting better and faster at it. He's taken a few independent steps before he falls. Now, he will willingly let go and just start walking. At times he makes it several feet before walking. Today, he actually made a couple scoots in crawling... After all this time on his feet. Lol.
