PT results

I've been a little absent lately from blogging but I've been trying to focus extra attention on my youngest son. I worry daily about his development and about his future. Is he on task with other almost 15 month olds? Is he going to need therapy? How can I provide the best for him? Did something happen during surgery? Did his brain get damaged before we got him the help he needed? Is he going to need another surgery? Are these bumps normal?
Blue Eyes had his physical therapy evaluation last week and they determined that he is a little behind but not significant. No, he's not walking yet. But he has mastered all of the things that lead up to walking. So while yes, he is almost out of the age range considered normal for walking, he'll get there.

Next we have to schedule an Occupational Therapy evaluation. They will determine if his fine motor skills are where they should be. These are the ones that worry me the most. He goes to see his pediatrician next week, I hope she can shed some light on whether or not she thinks we should see a therapist for that. I'm very anxious for his check up.

Until then, we will keep trying to teach a 15 month old how to squat. Yea, I'd like to see you try to teach that! She showed us how to do it at therapy and it looked pretty easy. We got home and both realized that maybe when she offered to do it with us, we should have. Oops. Lesson learned.

So while my baby boy isn't walking and all yet, he sure makes up for it in his cuteness!

  1. I'm glad his gross motor is coming along. I understand how these things can drive a Mom to insanity. My little girl didn't have any words at 18m and finally I convinced someone to evaluate her. She got into speech therapy and made amazing progress and now she will not be quiet :) Good luck w/ your next eval!
