Our 10 month olds sound at the same sort of stage, can sit for ages and ages on end, but can't get himself to sitting, loves holding hands and can now take steps and walk, but can't pull himself up or cruise and lazy bones can't crawl either, but can somehow always manage to reach what he wants by going on his back or rolling!
Maybe its just Bens! Ours can crawl, one of two ways on hands and knees then a lunge forward onto belly and then back up onto hands and knees OR knees and forehead, he can then move his knees and slide his head against the ground - yeah he finally gets where he wants but for ages he had to do the 3 point turn rolls!
He is still not great sitting up, sometimes he can do it for a while, other times he falls over as soon as you let go of him. If he is standing (and you are holding him) instead of taking steps he prefers to lunge his torso forward to see if he can get it! And he has not figured out that when I stand him up against something he needs to keep hold!
He also cannot/does not say words beginning with "M" but he loves saying allgoneallgoneallgone and dadadada (and a couple of others that dont sound like anything to be honest!)
With this said, we are not surprised that he is not doing too much to be honest - he was in and out of hospital almost every week at one point for nearly the first two months of life, then he was not feeding great at all, was borderline failure to thrive, not loosing weight as such but not gaining enough to stay on the lines in the chart, then he was diagnosed as dairy allergic/intolerant and when he went onto hypoallergenic formula picked up a lot! Then he needed a few months on dairy free for his body to reset as such and now are are slowly reintroducing dairy to him, he cannot have dairy products yet but he is having foods that contain dairy (which is literally everything! I was amazed just how much contains dairy!).
He is going to be 15 months when Jellybean arrives so it should be fun!
