About a month I guess he would let go of the coffee table and just stand there and not attempt to move but not be holding on to anything. Then he figured out how to stand up without holding on to anything then started walking a few days later.

A looooong time. I guess she started standing on her own about three months ago? Still not walking and she is going to be 21 months next week.

Hmmm... thinking about it now my son never stood on his own before walking. He was crawling around 6 months and walking at 11. He was always needing to be on the move so just standing there wasnt an option lol. He did alot of cruising and walking while holding hands before he took some steps on his own.

My son started walking at ten months old. About a month or so before he started walking he was standing up without holding on to things.

Are you asking standing while holding onto things or standing without holding onto things?
My 11 month old isn't full out walking yet but is taking up to 6 steps on his own now. He was standing and holding onto things since he was eight months. Shortly before he started taking steps he would let go of the couch and just stand there. But remember each kid is different. My 11 month old has two older brothers he is trying to chase after that are close in age with him.
