Lexi crawled at 9 months, started furniture walking one week later, but didn't actually walk til 13 months (2 weeks before Tabitha was born). I know bubs who have walked at 10 months, and some who have only just started at 21 months. I think they say that as long as they are walking by 24 months it isn't anything to worry about.
DD1 at 11 months. DD2 at 14 months. We also have a boy at daycare who is 18 months and just pulling himself to stand.

my dd started walking holding onto things at 10 months & started taking steps (& holding onto nothing) at 11 months & walked & never crawled again at 14 months. my niece was walking at 11 months. Every baby is different. My friends doc told her that if sher dd wasn't walking by march then she should go back & see him, but he wasn't 2 fased by it at all.
DS1 was walking proficiently at 10-10.5 months (first unaided steps were a month or so beforehand) but, it is actually supposed to be a good thing if children walk later on. Crawling is said to assist in the development of early problem-solving, mathematics, and spacial awareness skills smile
ETA: My brother didn't walk until a week before his 2nd birthday. He had the necessary balance etc. well before that; he simply preferred to crawl!

DS1 took his first steps a few days before his first Birthday... He slid around teh hosue from 6 months and crawled at around 7-8 months
DS2 i thought was going to do everything faster as he was about to crawl at 5 months and well he is almost 6 months and has not got any further with his crawling. He rather try sit up now and make bridges on his hands and up on his toes! Weird child! LOL...
