  • She sounds to be doing really good

  • She'll probably start rolling over before too long. Mine rolled one way at 4.5 mo. and the other way at 5 mo. (boy was that a long two weeks!). Then she'll start sitting up unsupported...mine did that around 6 mo. Then crawling ...mine army crawled at 8 mo. and really crawled at 9 mo. Then pulling up..mine 9 mo. Then cruising (holding on to furniture as they walk)...mine 10 mo. Then walking....mine 11 mo. Keep in mind that babies vary widely with these milestones and they are not a good measure of how they will perform later in life. Don't stress out about them...after all, do you know any college students that still crawl to get from one place to the next?!? =)
