The next thing, IMO, is the putting herself into a sitting position. Not just being able to sit unassisted, but putting herself there.
My daughter began with that after crawling, and I could tell she sould be doing it when she would kinda flip onto her side and look at us that way. Slowly she would be more and more upright holding herself up with one hand, until one day she was sitting, and now she does it like she has always been doing it.
After that will be pulling herself up on things, but only standing on her knees, and then making the transition from knees to standing on her feet.
That's how my daughter progressed, each thing happened about 3 weeks apart, and she is 8 months old now.
