Milestones in Preemies

For the mom's of preemies who are now a bit older, did your baby (or babies) hit their developmental milestones at their "adjusted" age or did it come earlier (i.e holding toys, sitting up, etc)? I have almost 4 month old twins (who were born 8 weeks early) and just curious to have an idea what to expect. They're doing so great now, but just wanted to get other mom's perspectives. Thanks!

Brandi, Ellie has met all developmental milestones early. She rolled over at 9 weeks and sat up unsupported at 5 months. She is now getting close to crawling at 6 months
