I agree w/ the PP. My twins were both walking/running at 10 months, but I think a lot of it was b/c of competition. Boys tend to walk a little later as far as I know, but it it goes much longer you might want to talk to your ped. about it. He could just be more comfortable crawling around. At 14 months, they're starting to be more like "little people" than babies and he could just be choosing to do what's more comfortable for him. BTW, for us, exersaucers and push toys were great when our boys were learning to stand and walk. This is going to sound terrible, but when you need a break, throw on a Baby Einstein video, put your little guy in a walker or exersaucer and let him move to it. It's great to strengthen their legs- my guys love the music in those videos. Don't stress about it too much- unless he's showing other signs of delayed learning, he's probably just going to stand up and start running soon.
