my ds is 11 weeks old and he loves to stand up on my dh and mine lap. he'll even try to walk up our stomachs and chest. he rest his full weight on his legs for about 20 seconds or so, than sits for a minute, than does it all again. did anyone elses baby do this? is it ok to let them put weight on there legs this young?

This is a normal behavior at this age. Its one way that your baby is developing muscle and the motor coordination needed for crawling and eventually walking.

Yeah, that's normal....I think I had read that they actually lose the "trying to walk" attempt at around 4-5 months and then pick it back up again when they are actually ready to try to walk.
