Baby Development Milestones

Hello!
I have an 8 month old who sits up by herself for the most part. Once in awhile she’ll take a tumble down but she sits up without me having to hold her.
However, she’s not getting into a sitting position from lying down on her own. She’s also not crawling or trying to pull herself up on furniture. When I stand her up she will place her feet down but will keep lifting them up once placed. She doesn’t keep them place on the ground longer than a few seconds. I’m a bit concerned, should I be?
She does do the other typical 8 month milestones though, bangs toys together, drinks from her water cup, smiles at herself in the mirror, gives high fives and knows her name (she tends to ignore sometimes when she is too occupied).
I understand babies develop at their own pace but should she be doing at least one of the named above milestones by now?
Thank you for any reply.
