Default Expectations

My family (me, wife, and two boys [2 and 4]) have just welcomed a new addition, "Vader". He just turned 6 months and has been adapting to his new family very well.

What should our expectations be for a 6 month old?

At 6mo old he is still a puppy.
1. He should be potty trained by now.
2. He should be done with his teething.
3. He is probably in that leggy clumsy stage.
4. He should know basic commands, sit, stay, down, and leave it.
