when should your baby start sitting up on their own, playing with toys, recognizing their name, holding their own bottle, rolling from back to belly, and cutting teeth???

all kids learn and do things at differnt ages.
my daughter was nearly 3months when she lernt to roll
nearly 5month when she sat up
she was 5months and 3weeks old when she cut her 1st tooth
she has played with toys or at least taken interest in them since about 9 or 10 weeks
she recognises her own name and has done since about 7months.
she wont hold her own bottle...she knows how to but likes mummy to hold it for her...and also when she holds it she dosnt understand how to tip it up so just sucks in the air.

shes 8months and can shake and nod her head,poke her tounge out, say mum,dad,nan and no. she can crawl and has since 6months and since about 6 and a half months had grabed on to things to stand up.
now at 8months she walks with the help of holding on to the coffee table or walker toys.

thats just my daughter sure many kids will do these things sooner then she did or later then she did....they all seem to catch up with eachother at about 3 years old.
