I feel like a failure...

I have 10 month old twin boys. One crawls, rolls around, pulls up and his going around in his walker. The other can roll from his back to his sides, from his stomach to his back, is trying to sit up from laying on his back, pulls up when he has our hands, is not crawling, hates to be on his stomach. He cries and rolls immediately over to his back if we put him on his stomach. He can scoot on his butt though. We try with him. I spend hours everyday playing on the floor with them both. I'm worried that he hasn't hit those same milestones as his twin. Makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong. What do yall think?

Thank you all for responding. It does make me feel better about him. I appreciate your kind words.

They may be twins but they are still two different people who will move along and grow at their individual paces.

Each child is different.  If you are concerned about talk to his doctor.

It's ok mama. Don't compare them and only worry when his pedi does. Big hugs to you.

They are 2 different boys. ALL kids develop at different rates. Including twins.

Relax.  Talk to your pediatrician.  Kids develop differently.  I would think that they're both very much in normal range.  Are either of them babbling at all?  Were they the same size when born?

 Each child is DIFFERENT, and as such will each reach mile stones at different times.

I'd be more concerned with your child's reaction to being on his tummy.  Have you had him checked to see if is something is possibly hurting him?

Every child is different.

Only concern is the walker, doctors don't recommend them anymore because it can hurt their hips and knees.

He's just developing at a different rate.
