Dd just turned 7 mos and cannot get into the sitting position by herself I have to put her in it. And she also isn't crawling.. Well she just started like dragging her legs and pushing herself around with her arms. . She can roll but doesn't do it often.

Every baby learns at their own pace. It's nothing to worry about!

So getting into the sitting position by self is "supposed" to happen by now?cuz I cannot remember how old dd #1 was when she could get into the position by herself

Well he can do all those other things, so that's great I wouldn't worry if I were u either. My dd isn't doing anything really! That's why I'm worried :(

they should be able to sit by the END of the 7th month (i.e. right before they turn 8 months) and crawling is an END of the 10th month skill (for those charts that still even have crawling on them), as long as she CAN roll I don't see an issue.

I still wouldn't worry. Every baby is diff. My son decided to do stuff early but most the other babies I know didn't start sitting, crawling and more til 9-12mo. I know a baby who is 11mo and he is just learning to crawl but can't sit yet and the doctors say he is perfectly ok...good luck

It is within the range.  Don't worry yet.
