crawling but not sitting

My son is almost 7 months old.  He has been crawling since he turned 6 months.  During the 5th month, just before he started crawling he was almost sitting.  Once he began the crawling he has had no desire to sit and if i put him in the sitting position he will throw himself over.  Is it normal to crawl and not sit?  Will he eventually sit once the excitement of crawling goes away?

My two older kids crawled before sitting.

Nadia sits just fine but isn't remotely interested in crawling.

thanks ladies.  I feel much better.  I just wanted to make sure there wasnt a problem with him skipping a milestone.

let your baby go in any order she wants. theres no person that cant sit in the future. meaning it will happen . dont rush her.
