my daughter peyton will be 8 months on the 21.... she does crawl too much... she knows how to turn herself around in circles, or roll around to get to things and tries vry hard to pull herself up. wondering if someone has advice im a first time mom and unsure if his is normal.... is this because she might need more tummy time or has someone else gone through this?

I had one that did the scoot on the bottom, and the other three were creepers and crawlers. Not one of mine walked before one year. Even for actual crawling, that was about 10 months before they could really do it well. One went backwards for the first few weeks, too. Some babies will walk at 9 months, other 15 months as long as she is reaching milestones and is interested in making progress, all is well

Totally normal. She may start creeping on her elbows and belly, or scoot on her bottom in a sitting position, or roll from place to place or actually crawl before she walks. Some kids go from floor to walking but most find some way to move about in between. I would not worry, she sounds perfectly normal.
