  • Typically 10-14 months old. They start "cruising" before that (walking along furniture, holding onto table edges)

  • My son started walking on his bday, not very good, but by the next month, when he was 13 months, he just took off and didnt look back. He would've walked when he was 9 months, that's when he started to let go an take 3-4 steps, but he kep falling and busting his bottom lip so I guess he got scared plus his legs look like this ( ) It's cute. lol.
