At the end of 3 weeks with us (3 years, 7 months old)

Posted by on August 30, 2013

Tracking M’s progress – for her sake, for mine, and hopefully for encouraging (ultimately!) others who may be considering a child with substantial developmental delays. 🙂 At her pediatrician appt this week, she’s estimated at a 6-9 month old developmentally speaking.  32″ tall and almost 20 lbs (off the percentile charts tiny).

* Goes from sitting, to standing – when holding our hands

* Will raise her arms up for us when I say “up?”

* Smiles and laughs with us; starting to respond to tickling

* Will pick up finger-foods (“puffs”) with her whole hand and get them in her mouth about 80% of the time (no pincer grasp yet, but she wouldn’t even pick these things up until about two days ago)

* Sleeping less (which is a good thing, believe it or not!),

* Eating a whole slew of puréed fruits and veggies

* Scooting across the floor on her bottom, to get around

*Speaking a bit of Mandarin

* Playing with toys – HUGE step, as her fingers had been her only toys for probably 3 years.

Smiling after figuring out how to play some tunes. (We start them on piano young around here!)

Pounding out some tunes. The music nerd in my was thrilled that this plays arpeggios - makes it pleasant to the ears. ;)
