DS can put himself into a full upright sitting position from his belly or his back easily but isn't crawling. is this a strange way to go about things? i mean i know all babies are different and all but i just thought crawling would precede him being able to do this. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

My DS (now 3) was like that - able to sit up well before he had any interest in crawling. I think it's about the baby's personality really. Some kids are more ambitious about their mobility, some have other obsessions.

My first did that too. She didn't crawl till almost 9 months but was moving from laying to sitting at 7ish months. Dd2 and dd3 both crawled first.

Totally normal. My son did it too! I was glad because he was lunging forward and getting stuck on his belly.

My guy went rolling, sitting, crawling, and is now cruising. I always thought that was the more "normal" progression.

yes so did I!! my guy does things differently <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> for example when he started rolling over he rolled over both ways at the same time! he's a trip.

DD is 7 months and is the same way. She has also pulled herself up on her feet a couple times. She was only there a second. Still not quite crawling.<br><br>
I figured I had stunted her crawling ability since I have an injured leg and we've both been living on the sofa a lot. She hasn't had as much floor time as I would have liked. Maybe the no crawling is just her.

DD could do that at 7 months and then learned to crawl a few weeks later. NEVER rolled over (unless she was getting on her tummy to then sit up), NEVER EVER army crawled. She went straight into perfect crawling.<br><br>
She seemed more concerned about being able to sit up and read herself a book than going anywhere. She is so chill. It is a really cool personality/temperament. Enjoy!
