My son is a very healthy 21lbs smily boy. Yes I know he is very big, compared to when he was born at 4lb 10oz.....But he is rolling over very playful, eats ok, the jarred baby food all that good stuff, my ? is what is coming my way....When will he begin to crawl, what about siting unsupported...when he he begin to hold his own bottle....Things of that nature.....
I know all children are different and they will do things in thier own time, but the books are so vague on what to expect.....can you give me just a rough idea?

The books are vague for a reason...
Every child is different. Some babies crawl at four and five months and some don't crawl until nine or ten months. There is no "this goes for all" when it comes to the development of infants and children...each child develops at their own pace.
It has been known that larger babies tend to take longer to walk and crawl. However, as I previously stated, this does not go for ALL babies who are larger...it is simply a generalization based on studies.

My daughter was I think 5 months old when she started to crawl but she was averaged sized at that age...I think she was in the 45th percentile or something. She was "cruising" by the time she was 7 months but refused to walk by herself until she turned 14 months.
I have a friend that has a16 month old daughter who is STILL not walking alone...she has no developmental issues at all....she just isn't ready to walk yet.
Once again, it all just depends on the child.
