Will my kitten ever going to be a lap kitty?

Well... my kitten, Yuki - who is 14 weeks old... doesn't often sit / sleep on people's lap. Well actually, the only person she'd ever sleep on is me and occasionally my boyfriend. She doesn't bother doing the same with my older brother, or my parents. Anyway, do you guys think she'd change and sleep on people's lap / tummy eventually? My dad asked me this question earlier today.

You just never know what lurks in the minds of a kitty. Our Taz has never been a lap kitty and is about 8 or 9 years old. Within the past month he positively INSISTS on lap time.

Yuki may decide she wants to try snuggling when she gets a little older, or a little more comfortable in your house.

Hard to say, Miss Chloe was never a lap kitty until a few years ago, she is 13 or 14 now

Even if she doesn't turn out to be a lap kitty, I'm sure she will find other ways to show you she loves you. Our Jimmy was never a lap kitty, but he used to love to lick and groom us.
As soon as you started stroking him, he would lick you back. He especially loved Partner's hariy arms! He would hold Partner's arm down with his front paws and give him a real good wash

Yup, you have to play the waiting game like others have said you never know. Reyna could never be bothered with sleeping on my lap or anything she always had other places to be and things to do. But now (she's almost a year old) she'll come to bed with me or if I'm laying on the couch she'll come and lay down on my chest and nuzzle into my neck purring up a storm.

Like everyone has said, you never know what a kitteh will do as they grow. Just give her love, and love will come back to you.
Kitties, like people, have their own individual ways of expressing their love. Some are lap kittehs, some give you a kitty-bath, some give kitty-kisses, some snuggle with you at bedtime.
All have love in their heart.
