I'm not sure at what point do we call it "officially walking". Jacob has been toolin' around with one of his push toys since the ends of August. And watch out, he is quick with it! As of October 30, he started taking 5-6 steps towards someone or something and each day since he has added more and more steps. He's even getting the hang of turning around and regaining balance before he face plants. If he needs to get somewhere quick, his preference is still crawling or his push toy - but it won't be long before those are a distant memory . . .
I have discovered that it is very difficult to get a picture of him walking. You'll just have to trust me that he is walking in these photos and not just standing.
