My daughter turned 4mnth on the 11th I looked up milestones and she is not reaching them first she giggles, response to play, she coo's and has found her voice I guess you could say but it said she should be able to responed to her name, grab things and drop it to pick it up, shake a raddle to make noise and roll from belly to back she can't roll but at the same time Im always holding her so she doesnt get alot of belly time and for pickingthings up, she'll start to reach for things I can tell shes focused in and goes to grab but she doesnt make it all the way and when she does she loses focus and does something else and for a rattle nope she cant get that yet should I be worried its kinda freaking me out.

It sounds like she's fine. Those milestone charts are guidelines. Every baby is different. If you are truly concerned, talk to your doctor.

This.. Just give her a little more time. Make sure to get belly time in! Start with only a min or two and work up to at least 15 mins per day. Does she seem to move her arms and legs ok?

my daughter just turned 6 months old and has only been rolling for a couple weeks.  She hates HATES hates tummy time.  She has learned that her brothers will roll her over if she cries loud enough, daddy will too.

Dont go by everything a book has to say...all babies are different and develop different.  Head Start has a birth to three program if you are concerned with her development.  Or talk to her dr.

Kids all work on different things at their own time....dont let THIS freak u out! Lol...
ChT w ur peid next visit.. But i dont thnk u have much to worry about. You mention u hold her and her brothers help her... Well, when other people do stuff, we dont have to. Lol... Whxih probably explains the slight delay.... If given the opportunity, im sure she will do all this and more! Hugs

All kids develop at different speeds. I don't see how they can say kids need to be doing certain things at a certain time. She will get it when she's ready. I wouldn't worry about it.
