What milestones has your baby hit and at what age?

My son is 12 weeks old now and giggles sometimes when I pick him up over my head. He just started giggling within the past couple weeks but has been smiling since 1-2 weeks of age. He could pick his head up at around 6-7 weeks and was also pushing his upper body up with his arms during tummy time. He does focus really well on his mobiles and enjoys them. He talks to them and smiles at them and also turns his head to follow me as I walk around. He's been cooing since birth. He can almost sit up by himself and holds his head up pretty well and turns his head to see and watch what he wants. He has also been trying to stand up in our laps (with some assistance) since about 2 weeks of age and puts one foot in front of the other as if to walk which makes me think he's going to walk before he crawls. He makes really good eye contact and loves to talk to everyone. The only thing that concerns me is that he's not yet figured out how to roll over. He can only roll from his back onto his side. He doesn't roll onto his tummy or vice versa. Should I be worried? I'm not sure of where he should be at developmentally and what is normal.

My 12 week old is doing all the same similar milestones as yours. Plus he pushed/crawled himself a good 3 feet today toward his daddy while on tummy time. He also sits up well in his Bebe pod seat. But he also has not rolled over yet. Not worried, I'm sure he will soon enough and I'm enjoying him laying on the couch right now without too much worry..lol. But because he is reaching all other milestones fine and early there is nothing to worry about.

My 13 week old has been smiling since bith. Was able to pick up her head and move it from side to side from the moment she came out, (no joke) Has been cooing since she was about 2 months, was able to hold her head up stady at about 7-8 weeks. Able to watch her mobile go around and follow it at 1 week, was able to roll from her belly to back at 10 weeks, is still working on the back to belly. Is able to grab things and pull her self across the floor at 11.5 weeks. Trying to sit up on her own, is able to with some assistance from the couch or from out legs/arms at 10 weeks.

She had a start at her giggles last week, but hasn't giggled sinse. She's only able to do huge smiles and she coughs or cries with a smile on her face when she tries to giggle.

My daughter is only 9 weeks and she has been rolling since just after she was born, she can hold her head up but not for very long but loves to stand every baby is different and develops different, i was worrying that she was going to hurt herself doing things so early untill i was told there was nothing to worry about.
