I remember my midwife saying that "post-term" babies are lot's of time advanced because every day they're in there there is so much important stuff happening.
Mine is the same, and also almost two weeks late (and in fact, I think we gave birth around the same time, mine is also almost seven weeks!)
he can definitely hold his head to 90 degrees, is starting to smile spontaneously and can even mimic me sticking out my tongue (so it seems anyway!) the docs and nurses at the hospital and now at his appts always remark on his 'strong' legs as well, since he can shimmy a good distance with them (but like the OP, can't hold both butt AND head up yet)
