Cole took a few steps, on his own, right around Halloween...he's been walking along furniture for so long that Jim and I have been eagerly anticipating the walking stage. I know he's completely within the normal range, but if he's mobile I guess I'd rather have him on his feet than his knees. By early November...the 14 month mark, Cole was walking!
Cole would still prefer to crawl, especially when he's on a mission and needing to get somewhere fast, but he's definitely walking. With two big monster dogs that barrel through the house, it's no wonder the boy feels safer on his knees.
