10 month old hitting milestones

I am worried about my daughters development. She was 10 months old a week ago and doesn't seem to be hitting all of the milestones.
The milestones she is reaching:
-standing up by leaning on furniture
-makes different sounds like ma da ya ba etc
-can now feed herself with her hands and is good at the pincer grasp
-smiles when playing peek a boo
Milestones she hasn't reached:
-she doesn't copy me or my husband at all
-She can't clap or wave
-only makes sounds not words like mama.
-she can't do activities such as putting a ball through a hole in a box

Should I be worried or is it normal to not hit all the milestones? Thank you for any help xx

My DD turned 10months on 3rd of May. She is exactly as your baby - does not imitate, clap or copy. She can crawl and pull to stand as your baby too. I am also worried and concerned about her development.

I have been researching and I am so confused!! I guess it's normal for all babies to develop at different times but it's just worrying when you search milestones and on every one it mentions clapping and copying sad

I think milestones are a good thing but also the work of the devil 😂

I have limited experience as my little one is 5 months and he's my first.

I don't think you've anything to worry about, you can tie yourself in knots reading about milestones and what everyone else's baby in the antenatal class is doing.

My son should be tap dancing, writing a symphony and sleeping through the night apparently 😂

Ok I'm exaggerating but you get my drift.

Be aware of certain milestones but don't let them drive you to distraction or you'll miss her growing up.

I agree with @gobbycop My dd didn't crawl until her first birthday and I was freaking out but the HV team weren't bothered.
The things you've listed she can do sound great and the others are quite specific and she probably does them now and again without you noticing or it will be a matter of weeks before she does.

Thank you for your replies. It is just so worrying seeing that your child should be able to do certain things... I feel like a rubbish mum and that I am not doing things right. Thank you again for taking time to reply.
