I went to check on my son last night, who turned 8 months today and he was sitting up I was so excited he sat himself up...Are yours doing this yet or even pulling themselves up?

Our little guy started sitting up between 5 and 6 months and crawling on his knees at 6. Now, at 8 months he is working on walking. He can walk a good 5 feet without falling. So exciting. :-)

My daughter turned 9 months old today and she started sitting up around 6 months. She started crawling about two months ago and she walks along furniture. I believe she will be walking very soon :)

My son can sit on his own, go from laying down to sitting, can pull him self up to standing from pretty much any position. He has been crawling for 2 months now and he often will stand by himself, but he wont walk just yet.

yes my boy is very busy - he's sitting, crawling, pulling himself up & even taking a couple of shaky steps if you hold his hands. Very busy boy!

My son has been sitting alone since five months, he started army crawling shortly thereafter and would go from flat on his stomach to sitting up all by himself at the same time...he began crawling on hands and knees about 3 weeks ago and is now standing around furniture! He's a little stinker and already gets into drawers and cupboards and pots and pans...he's soo curious and gets mad because he can stand up against stuff but has to figure out how to get back down now...But my older daughter didn't sit until 6 months...crawled on all four at 10 months and didn't walk until 15 mons. Each one is a little different and learn according to their own time!

My son started sitting up at 6 months, crawling at 7 months, & at 8 months he began pulling himself up on things. Now, at almost 9 months, he never sits still. He gets around really fast (along the couch, coffee table, etc). He is not scared of anything! It won't be long before he's walking on his own!

My son is 9 months old. He has been sitting unsupported since he was about 4 1/2 months, he started crawling at about 51/2 - 6 months and is walking all around my house now. The doctor says he is definitely an early walker.

My daughter has been sitting up perfectly since she was 5 months old. Very early. She is JUST starting to crawl now at 8 1/2 months...but she pulls herself up to standing on everything she can. She loves walking around her little activity tables and playing with everything. She stands very well holding onto something. She would mush rather stand than crawl.

My son will be 9 months on the 16th of april. He has been sitting without support since 6.5 months, crawling since 7 months and is starting to stand alone at times already. my eldest sat at 6 months, crawled on 8, stood at 10 then got his first 6 teeth in 3 weeks and walked at 11.5. all babies are different. my youngest have no teeth yet either but at the rate he is going might walk before 10 months.

My 8 month old son has been sitting up unassisted for a few months now. He can stand for a few seconds unassisted, but has yet to take his first step. It looks like it will be any day now, though, as he has no fear and loves to "walk" while holding onto the couch, or coffee table, etc.

My son sits, crawls with his belly on the floor, and pulls up to stands (but only gets to his knees). He goes up on all fours to crawl, but he hasn't quite put it together yet. He still can't get to a sitting position on his own. I have tried to encourage him without pushing too much. He seems happy to be on all fours....

Yes! She just turned 9 months. She got herself back up to sitting for the first time about 4 weeks ago. Then she took a break. Now for the past week that's all she's doing! She'll lie down just so she can push herself back up to sitting! So cute! She also likes to pull herself up to standing if she can get a good grip on something, but no cruising (walking while holding on to stuff) yet.

My daughter could crawl before she sat up, she started when she was 7 months old and started sitting herself up very well at about 7 and a half months. now she will walk with support. your son probably does a lot of stuff when you think he's asleep, thats when my daughter started when she was in her crib supposedly taking a nap.

My son has been sitting unattended since he was 5 1/2 months old but he isnt crawling yet.

[deleted account]

Elton's been sitting up quite steadily for a good month now (he just turned 8 mos yesterday).. he's army crawling. he pulled him self up randomly just 2 times on the edge of the couch (which is quite low, actually). he can hold himself up on the edge of the couch, but he does pull himself into his bouncy chair repeatedly after rolling right back out of it afterwards. he prefers walking though (while holding on to our fingers).

My son will pull himself to a seated position provided there is something that is easy for him to grab nearby and if you give him your fingers to hold and keep them at the right height he'll pull right up to a stand. He'll be 8months and the end of the month.

Our boy starting sitting by himself at 7 months, and by 7 1/2 he was crawling. At 8 months he could pull himself to his feet and now (9 months on April 9th) he can walk sideways along the couch. I go into him in the mornings and from naps and he's standing, peeping at me over his crib. I'm told he is slightly ahead in his movement ability.
