both work, they just have two different meanings:
 
 "from the time we can walk"  --we donīt/ canīt   established friendships before we can walk
 
"by the time we can walk" -- we have already established friendships before we even learned to walk

I prefer from. I feel that by requires to be used in the past tense. We have started friendships by the time we can walk.
