Baby walking age: how do you know when they are ready?

Lucas, my big man, is starting to show signs on wanting to walk. He pulls himself up to his feet all the time. He'll grab onto the edge of anything and pull up to his feet and he'll side step all over the place! I try to take his hands off and have him walk forward. He does okay, but prefers side stepping so far haha. Pulling up to the feet holding onto something is a huge indicator that baby is ready to start practicing! Ages will vary, every baby is different. :)

      I agree. Has anyone ever seen a baby skip the cruising stage and jump right into walking?
