6 month old isn't sitting up

My little girl is actively eating, "talking" with ba, da, & ma, and she's scooting like she's trying to get up to crawl. She hasn't really shown any interest in sitting up. Any advice? Or am I just paranoid? She is very active with tummy time (rolls A LOT) and bounces in her free-standing bouncer. I feel like I gave her toys that are putting the cart before the horse so-to-speak.

my daughter in 9 months right now, and she can sit up, but never does... she would rather stand and try to cruise than sit and play with toys.... I work with her on sitting and once i get her into the position or if she is eating--no problem, but otherwise, she's just not interested....Don't worry about it.... Some babies don't even crawl before walking, and it sounds like your little one is just too busy talking and trying to crawl to worry about it right now! She'll get there
