  • around 7months, then he took off crawling at 8 and walking at exactly 13 months. All babies are different but they all do it at some point.

  • You'll laugh at this one, and no she isn't delayed. She has been ruled stubborn. 13 months. There were times I would walk into the room and swear she had been sitting right before I went in. When you sat her up she would throw herself back. Now she does it and just grins at you. Or yells Hi and waves. Little tart.

  • 5 months and 2 weeks... very funny, all of the sudden i just sat him down and was reaching for my boppy and he just sat there, and so i timed him, it was about 15 minutes... he's been standing since he was practically born LOL he hangs onto stuff now when h's standing and moves his little legs... he's 7 monhs old now, so whatever he does nothing shocks me.. LOL they all do their own thing in their own time..

  • 6 months is supposed to be the average, but none of my three were sitting unassisted by then. I remember because at their 6 mo pix, I'd hold them, get them balanced, take my arm away, yell "shoot" to the photog, and then grab them before the tumbled over. :)

  • Just before 6 months. I remember saying to my fiance, "Shouldn't she be sitting up by now??" And the next day there she was doing it all by herself. :)
