Almost 8 month old...knee sitting and pulling himself up

My son who will be 8 months next week has been doing somewhat of an army crawl since about 6ish months. Despite all my best efforts he will not get up on his hands and knees. It’s like he skipped straight to pulling himself up on things and standing. Then when he is tired of standing he sits on his knees/legs not a full W but I am worried it could get there. Is there something more I should be doing to encourage him to crawl on hands and knees?

Hi! Thanks for reaching out! Here is a post I did on trouble shooting crawling that may give ideas. Here is also my crawling playlist on YouTube which has some ideas you can implement! Also in terms of w-sitting here is a post that can give you some things to work on for transitions! I hope some of these ideas help!
