I bet he is not "late", especially since boys sometimes progress more slowly than girls do. Just make sure he is not spending much time confined (car seat, carrier, stroller) and has plenty of time being carried in your arms (BEST exercise for balance, coordination and increasing strength). I don't mean being carried strapped into a baby pack. And the rest of the time facilitate him roaming freely around the room you're in by crawling, rolling, whatever. Then you'll know that he's getting everything he needs for his mind to gain command over his body and for his body to GAIN STRENGTH.
