  • The went backwards in chronological order. My oldest was at 10 months. My middle was at 9 months and my youngest was at 8 months. I joke that if I kept having kids eventually one would come out already walking.

  • My son is 10.5 months old and is walking pretty good with 2-hand assist, very slow and wobbly with 1-hand assist, and will only stand momentarily before falling if he doesn't have a hold of something. We are hoping he will take off in the next 6 weeks because we would like him to be walking for his 1st birthday (even though it's still normal for kids to start walking all the way until 18 months).

  • I think the younger ones try to keep up with the older ones. My third started walking the earliest at 8 months behind his walking toy and at about 9 to 9 1/2 on his own.
