I wouldn't worry too much, I hear it's very common. Kaleigh was first to sit up, crawl, walk, etc.... she started walking at 11 months, and her twin sister Mianna was lazy and didn't walk until almost 19 months! The doc wasn't too concerned, but when I brought it up at an appointment he said if I was really worried then to call Head Start and to have her evaluated... at that time she was approved for physical therapy just to strengthen her muscles and be shown a couple exercises, but to be honest once we were set up she'd started walking anyway.
All in all, I say it's normal, but if you are overly concerned it doesn't hurt to bring it up to the doc.
Hope that helps!
Mine were pretty far off in almost everything. Ryder walked at about 15 mos, Cooper was over 2. Each state has an early intervention program so if you are worried that any of them arent hitting their milestones on time call and have them evaluated. Cooper's therapists tell me they see a lot of multiples. He's had speech therapy, pt and ot. Ryder has had no therapy.
Yes Danielle (twin B) is advanced more physcially than Deanna (twin a.) Danielle crawled at 6mos and walked at 11mos. Deanna crawled at 8mos and walked at 14mos. But Deanna is more advanced verbally than Danielle. And Deanna has better fine motor skills.... So they are both advanced in front of each other in different ways.

Gavyn and Kendric are different as far as development. They each have things they are more advanced in. It is weird. The developmental specialists want them to start speech therapy, but say they aren't behind cognitively. As far as crawling and walking, they both started that around the same time.
