Trying to sit up? Or lift his head?

My son (2.5 mos.) now does this thing where when I prop him up on pillows he pulls his head forward like he's trying to sit up. He can already hold his head up pretty well but is he really trying to sit up or just hold his head? When he does it I pull him up to a sitting position and he smiles and giggles. Could this mean he's already starting to sit up on his own??

  • Ooooh it sounds like it!!! It sounds like your baby is very advanced!!! My uncles baby is the same way. He's four months and doing the same things!!
