Next step?

Posted Oct 16 2009 10:03pm
Eon is doing great in his gross motor development. I am so proud of him. I think a huge part of his success is his amazingly positive and knowledgable PT, Jill! She is a gem! She is his biggest cheer leader and I joke that he could be laying in the corner like a blob and she would think he was super. :) I once brought up my fear that he would "butt scoot" instead of crawl and she looked at me all aghast and exclaimed, "I have never had a child butt scoot!" I guess we don't need to worry about that.

As he grows and matures, I am feeling like it's all happening too fast! Which, of course, is silly because the reality is that he's hitting milestones in slow motion compared to his typical peers. (I guess....I don't really pay attention to the "norms"). But, I worry that I'm behind.

I want to research vitamin therapies and supplements. I intended to have already decided whether to get the "Love and Learning" or the "Your Baby Can Read" programs and still haven't spent any time on either of them. I've only purchased the first "Baby Signing Times" dvd and only know about 4 signs from it. The kids know all of them, of course. And, I read a thread today on the use of flashcards on Babycenter's Ds board, and I have no idea what they're talking about! But, it sure sounded like I should.

Ack! I can't keep up! And he's moving slowly. I do this every once in awhile. I panic thinking I am not providing all he needs. Then, I realize that he's doing great and being "one of the bunch" is something that he needs and we have that down pat. Balance is key and I don't think I've had that since baby number two!

In other news, he learned to drink from a straw cup, yesterday. How cool is that?!
