Transcription: 
Most babies begin to crawl sometime between seven and ten months of age. This is a really exciting time for your baby because it gives them a sense of independence and freedom, so that they can move about on their own. After your baby learns to crawl, often times, they learn to pull to stand. This will help prepare them to walk. Most babies will take their first steps some time around their first birthday, but it's normal for them to take their first steps as late as eighteen months of age. As a mom and a pediatrician, I know it is so exciting to see your baby learn how to walk. Before you know it, your baby is going to be running. Really take the time to enjoy this process because it goes by so quickly.
