Lazy baby or developing slow?

Ok, so I am wondering this about DD because of DS having ASD. She is 6 months old and refuses to roll over unless its in her sleep. I know she can do it, she's done it a couple times and clearly she can if she does it in her sleep but everytime I put her on her belly on the floor (since about 1 week old) she just throws a fit and cries and doesn't do anything except the "swimming" look (kicks feet and flails arms). I helped her push up on her arms yesterday and she put her knees under her and rocked, but she wont push up on her own very often. She sits up on her own, holds her bottle, and babbles, getting 2 bottom teeth in, jumps in her jumper but she just wont roll or push herself up. I don't know if she's just being lazy or is learning that slow. What do you ladies think?

Lazy. Try not to compare your kids lol. You will convince yourself there is something wrong and it will just stress you out.

If she can do it in her sleep, she can do it awake, she may just not want to.  She's only 6 months, give her time.

She just does not want to. Don't worry about it. Remember the range of normal is vast.

Thanks. I just worry that she will end up like DS and it's hard, I can't imagine how to handle 2 even though i would do my best. I'm still new at this mom of 2 thing with a spec needs child so I am still trying to get used to it and figure out how to handle both at the same time, so sometimes I feel like her not doing some stuff is my fault cause I can't spend all my time in the floor with her and it makes me feel guilty. But, I am doing my best and tell myself that everyday and my kids are happy and taken care of so I try not to beat myself up over it. I figure it just takes time to adjust and figure out how to handle both as DS requires alot of attention and so does DD. DS just LOVES his sister though and she loves it when he plays in the floor with her so I figure she will learn some stuff from him long the way. I like it that they can play somewhat now cause I can cook dinner or clean without having baby in tow lol. She has realized she has feet now too and chews them all the time lmao how cute is that? :)

Lazy. My son is NOW 8 months old and rolling from his back to his belly. He would do this whole, cry thing if he didn't want to be on his back. So I would help him, by guiding him to do it himself. Now he does it on his own.

 

Before though I'd just flip him right over. Shame on me, I know, I know. After a few times, of guiding him, and/or just letting him cry til he did it, now he does it on his own.

I am enjoying her non mobile stage right now lol cause I know once she starts crawling it's going to get harder chasing her and DS around everyday lol. I just ffind myself wondering sometimes if she is like DS. But, by the time he was 6 months I knew he was different and she doesn't seem to be the same way.
