She will when she's ready. Or she will go straight to walking. Don't compare her to other babies as they all develop differently. If she's sitting, grabbing and rolling she's doing great!

She could skip crawling and go straight to trying to walk. It happens.

 my ds hated it and then all the sudden he just wanted to and did it. he was the same with walking, and pretty much everything in life. lol. he pushes it to the max and then just gets it. its frustrating though. also my dh went straight to walking.

This. Dd didn't crawl for the first time until her 9 month "birthday". And even then it was a pathetic army crawl. 5 weeks later she was walking.

Crawling isn't necessary she may just skip to cruising.

My daughter started crawling at 5 months and was cruising on the furniture the day after. The reason I got her to crawl was by standing on the other side of the room and putting a bottle down on the floor next to me. She came hauling a$$! 


All babies are different though and she seems like shes doing just find developmentally if she's sitting and pulling things towards her and such. Is she standing or trying to pull herself up into standing yet? (It's still technically early, but just wanted to ask)

Mine kind of "army crawled" until 9/10 months or so.  She'll crawl when she's ready then walk when she's ready.  Mine didn't walk until about 15 months either, then one day she just stood up and walked.
