  • he could pull himself up around 8 or 9 months but wasn't fully standing on his own until 10 months. walked about a week before his first birthday.

  • each kid is at their own pace. my son didnt' stan up on his own till after 1. or do you mean pulling up? he was doing that at around 7 months. my dd, however, is 15 months and still won't pull herself up. she gets halfway there and then decides not too. she's seeing a PT for it, but that's just to help her speed up, even the PT says she'll do it eventually.

  • She could pull herself up and stand holding onto things sometime during the 8th month, stood on her own with out holding anything at 10 months, and walked at 11 months, but not well till 12 months.

  • my son is 4 months old and can sit on his own for a minute at a time and can stand holding onto something, such as his crib rail for 2 to 3 min without falling
