    My youngest son walked at 9 months. He hadn't even taken his first steps but had been walking around the furniture for awhile. I went out to the clothesline and he just decided to walk. He went straight to walking without crawling, but he was keen to play with anything with wheels, so he crawled around with cars or anything he could push along. He was my only child that did that, I think it was because he was just watching his older siblings all walking so that is what he did. Marie

    But really, you don't have to worry about it until he is a bit older- however if that time comes, google "brain gym" for more activity suggestions
    thanks so much, he has mastered the art of clapping hands, waving and "hi 5's". i had no idea these things were part of it all but it makes sense. i will have a google. thanks again.

    yes i understand completely, he has an older sister to watch and wants to do everything she does (stand at the cofffe table and chew on pencils while she draws, walk around with dolls in the strollers). However she is also trying to show him how to crawl but he wants nothing of it. it's very cute to watch them.
    i am waiting for the day he lets go of the support and walks on his own....he's not far off it
    dd didnt walk untill 18mths, she just got up one day and walked across the room like she'd been doing it for ages.

    it baffles me how different they are.
