And I have never heard of a baby starting to cruise at 5 months old, that is like rediculously early. So maybe she has been doing it so long she is just used to it.
Also make sure that you have places where she can take steps, maybe even take out something she would normally hold on to in order to get to something she likes.
She may get back down and crawl but she just might try to walk there too. My son crawled really late, I mean late. I did not realize it was because he was so tall if she wanted to reach something he could just do half of a roll across the floor to get there. Once I took the coffee table out of the room and started to spread his toys out he started crawling that week.
