Concerned About My 9 Month Old

I just kind of wanted some other peoples input in this. My nine month old still cannot crawl or sit up(he can sit if we put him there he just can sit up by himself) Is this pretty normal? He likes to walk around if you hold his hands. DO some babies just do this later. Thanks.

Kellen is 9 months and 1 week. She just started to crawl. It is more like...shuffle, shuffle, shuffle - then sit back and relax from all the work. LOL! She can "situp by herself only if she is on her tummy then pushes herself to the crawl position and puts her bottom on the ground. It is not a fluid or coordinated looking effort (Not a bit of grace...she gets that from me). Up until a few weeks ago, she had no desire to hold on to fingers to hold herself up in the stand. She loved to stand, but had no idea she could "hold on". A little boy at daycare learned to crawl at 11 months. Since then, he has really taken off (almost at a dead run!). No worries, it sounds like your little man is on track.
