Nothing abnormal : Most babies can sit well unsupported by 8 months. Crawling comes later. There is a range of normal and nothing you mentioned is abnormal however it is important that you keep your regularly scheduled well checks so the pediatrician can monitor development! As far as teeth - they vary greatly too! Many babies go toothless for the entire first year.

Relax: Prop sit at 6mo, get to sit by 8-9mo, crawl-pull to stand by 9-12 mo. Some babies creep and waddle prone in the first few months but it is disorganized and not consistent. Some babies have teeth at birth and some not until after 15mo. You might find some good basic information at www.healthychildren.org.
