mommies: sitting up ?

My son is 7.5 months old this week and the little stinkpot couldn't be any less interested in sitting up! I don't understand it at all! When did your little one start to sit on their own? Any input/ suggestions? I know babes do everything in their own time, I just wanted to hear when your babes got on the bandwagon with it.

A little backround: Odes is on the large size (30 inches long, 23 pounds) has held his head up from 1 week old. Rolls both ways, army crawls when he isn't feeling lazy, gets on his hands and knees, has pulled up a few times on stuff.

I must sound like a complete crazy even worrying about this.

Landon is a big boy too (currently 25lbs at 8.5 months old). He has been able to sit up since 6ish months, but he wasn't really steady and able to do it on his own well until about 7 months. I think bigger babies have a harder time because they have a lot more weight to haul around. Landon isn't crawling yet and I think it's going to be awhile before he does. He tries, but there's just so much weight for him to hold up!

Liam is a big boy as well!  (22lb and 28 inches at 7 months just yesterday!)  He has been sitting up for a few weeks now, but has gotten really steady/stable just in the last week.  However, he is still not very interested in rolling over just yet, only doing it once or twice in an entire week.  He cannot get to sitting position on his own, we have to set him there.  He kind of reaches and throws his body around to get something if he really wants it.

theresaobyrne- I miss you! Teagan is 7 1/2 months also and she sits up but we use that plastic chair . . . i'm going to butcher the spelling but I think its a bumbo. Anywho she is lazy too and wouldn't be sitting up without it. She got the feel for it and found out she enjoyed it when we used the chair and then she wanted to do it on her on so when we took the chair away she worked on it for 2 weeks and got it down. She is a crawler now and goes everywhere. I wish she would have taken some more time but oh well!

So in the time since I have written this post he has started: crawling, sitting up, standing and begun cruising! In that order lol. He started crawling before sitting - these little guys are crazy fast learners!

They're little monkeys aren't they!! One of my boys crawled really quickly but he other would drag himself (commando style!) so his brother would crawl away and then have to sit and wait for him to catch up. All of a sudden one day they both crawled into my bedroom together!! So cute.
They both took their first steps on the same day, 1 week before their 1st birthdays.
Stephon didn't have any interest in talking, mainly because Caleb did it all for him, they used to babble to each other all the time but then within maybe a week or so Stephon was chatting away as much as Caleb!

It amazes me how different they can be but how quickly they learn.
