Jules rolled for the first time the other night. I had him layed out on the bed and I turned around to find him on his belly. Oh boy was he unhappy. He doesn't like tummy time at all.
He is still not sitting at all by himself. When should he be doing this?
DS rolled over at 5 months, sat up at 7m, crawled at 10m and walked at 12m.
Every kid is so different, it's hard to say who will be doing what. In my family babies don't sit up until 7-8m, in other families 5m is more common.. You'll just have to wait and see!

She HATES tummy time, I think she would rather crawl then work on keeping her head up. She doesn't roll over yet, when she's laying on her back she just kicks her legs like crazy.
No rolling yet... thank goodness. In due time, though.

DS1 said, "oh, no, that's bad!" I asked why, and he said "because she'll roll out of the bed." I explained how we would keep her safe and that really she needs to learn to roll over. "Why?" he said. "well" I said, "It's hard to learn to crawl on your back!"
I expect sitting around 5 months, too. Crawling? Well, DS1 crawled at 6 months, walked at 9. DS2 WALKED at 7 1/2 months but didn't crawl until 10 months! (Wild child!) I have no expectations!

I WOH part-time, am a doula & childbirth educator, home/unschool, and hope we are nearing the center of chaos
Still crawling may not happen for a while, but he really wants to get around. When we are all up and playing (me and 2 yr dd), I can tell that he is jsut wishing he could jump up and wrestle with her or something.
Things are happening much sooner than with Joseph. Like bluebird mentions about her LO, I can tell he's ready to get involved and play!
