Isn't pulling up a milestone they don't hit usually until AFTER crawling?

Mason has always loved to be held standing. He especially loves this game mommy and daddy play with him. I'll sit cross legged, put him in my lap. Daddy will put his fingers out just in front so he has to stand and lunge a bit to grab them, which he does, and then he hangs on and stands. He can also pull himself no help by grabbing onto daddy's *stationary* (he doesn't help pull him up, just gives him something to grab onto) fingers and pulls himself up using his own core and leg muscles.

My Abby has no desire to roll over but has loved to stand for months now. We will do the same: hold her hands with our fingers and she'll pull herself up. She loves to stand and usually will start bouncing once there (she loves her jolly jumper). Because she loves to bounce, it's hard to get her to hold herself propped up, but I'm in no rush to get my little girl to grow up!

Abby is the same way. She has rolled over a few times, but would rather sit up and stand up. I think she's going to take after her big brother in that aspect. YIKES!! LOL

Karen, that theory was true for us! My first son was the same way!! He army crawled for awhile, but started climbing at 8months, walking at 9months, RUNNING by 10months!! My life has been hetic and crazy ever since!! He's 5.5 now and still gives me a run for my money!! I should weigh 80lbs by now as much as he keeps me on my toes!

Funny, my Mason...has always been so strong to stand for long periods of time too. He can pull himself up, like you said, by holding onto his hands. I never learned to roll and i don't know if he ever will but loves to sit up and stand up.

hi tessa! my son is the same way and has been doing that for a while...at his 4 month check up the dr let him grab her fingers and she wanted to pull him to sitting, but he had other plans and arched his back and stood right up on the table. i was told that that is sometimes a sign that they won't crawl for very long before they start walking...but not sure how accurate that is :)
