my son just turned 10 months yesterday, and he started pulling himself up and walking around furniture when he was 6 months, he started walking all on his own toward the end of his 8th month.

My daugter has been sitting up since 6 months of age and a week later started pulling herself up and now she is taking 5-6 steps at a time. I couldn't get her to eat any of the baby food so she pretty much was thrown into the 'adult' food but she is doing so great. Her favourite is spaghetti!

And at this moment she is cutting 8 new teeth. Her first teeth (2 lower front) came in at 6 months. She then got her 2 front top teeth, and now she is cutting 4 of her molars and the 4 teeth on either side of her front 4.

We were hoping that our daughter would last a little longer without being completely mobile (baby-proofing issues) but shes crawling, cruising and is determined she wants to walk now! So cute though :)

My lil boy who is 10 months now stood up on his own without holding onto anything when he was 7months. I was in total shock the first time I seen him do this. He has continued to do this on a daily basis but has yet to take a step and start walking.

My little guy started pulling himself up to stand a week before he turned 9 months old. He took two steps from his play table to the couch last week and just turned 10 months old on the 15th.

My daughter started crawling early and he's been pulling herself up for about 2 months now.. =) Now I just wish she would start walking before her daddy goes off to iraq. But his training starts next month and thats not likely that she'll be walking by then.. Otherwise the next chance he'll see her before he leaves is the week of christmas.. I'm crossing fingers for that!

Yep, same here. My son pulls up onto objects. He scoots around the room. He is starting to pull on everything that is near him. He loves paper (he enjoys my husbands sheet music). Maybe he will be a musician when he grows up. We have reached the right milestones at the right times so far. Sounds good.

Natalie was born Dec 31st, she started crawling/pulling herself up and cruising furniture at 6 months old. She can now stand unassisted and take 4-5 steps unassisted. She is very busy to say the least!!

My little girl is sitting up, will sit up from on her belly, will pull up on everything, loves to walk when you hold her hands but absolutley refuses to crawl........ she always hated being on her belly. whenever she was she would instantly roll over. Help, what can I do to encourage her. She can get around skooting all over on her rear, friends are telling me this is a way of crawling, but I don't think so. Any suggestions??? I have been putting her on her belly even though she doesn't like it as much. She is starting to make circles moving her legs and picking up one knee, do you think this is a sign that she is getting ready??? Please help with much needed advice.





My son also does this what I call upside down inch worm crawl.(scooting on his rear) Its just their funny little way.  My daught never crawled either she did a crab crawl...She only crawled after she learned to walk at 14 months.

My little girl is 9 months pretty soon and she's been pulling herself up for about a month and been cruising on anything she pulls herself and recently she lets go and stands up on her own for a few seconds. I think the longest has been at least 9 seconds.
I read that ususaly when a baby starts with a milestone it's when you reached it when you were a baby.

My Peyotn is pulling herself up and just started walking along furniture. She's been trying for awhile now, but is really getting good at it in the last week. Yesterday she tried to climb onto the coffee table to get at food i had sitting on it. I guess whatever motivation fuels the progress!!! I'm so excited that we've started really playing where she is aware of the world around her! She's been clapping a lot and now even does it with music and just started doing a little dance today!!! I could just talk about all the great things she does for hours and hours!

My little one is doing that too. She likes to push her walker around the kitchen and collect her toys on the tray...it is so funny.
She just started to free balance, I love watching her figure things out. We have an in door window that looks from the kitchen into the sun room and we have been leaving them open, lately she has been raising one leg to crawl through, plus she has found that the head board is something fun to climb up. lol
It is so exciting, thanks for sharing!!

I just wanted to tell you not to worry if you baby doesnt traditionally crawl.  She is not missing any mile stones.  If she doesnt like being on her belly why make her.  Scooting on the bottom is not that uncommon.  ;o)



Sounds like she is doing great with how she moves around on her own.  My neice, likes to army crawl, she is 3 weeks older than my daughter who is 8 months.  My daughter crawls on all fours.  Each baby is different and if she has found her own style of 'crawling' than consider her inventive and unique!
