Finn had OT this morning. I have to say that Emily really offers more than just OT - she works on a variety of things with him including a little speech, a little PT, a little cognitive therapy. I'm very pleased with how things are going. She is not at all concerned about the fact that Finn has stopped pulling to stand. Like several commenters mentioned, she also said that a lot of babies regress in one area when they're making strides in another area (and I do remember this was the foundation of one of my favorite baby books when Kevin was a tyke, Touchpoints by T. Berry Brazelton).

Anyway, he showed us today that he can pull to standing, he just doesn't seem to want to. So I trust that it'll come back when he's ready.

In other news, we had parent-teacher conferences today, and the twins' kindergarten teacher was telling us about a neighbor of hers and her husband's. They live in a condominium development and there is a young man in his 20s who has Down syndrome, and is living there in a condo on his own. She said he's got lots of support from family, but he's living on his own, he has friends over, he plays his stereo and dances, and he catches the bus every morning to go to work. I almost cried on the spot hearing this!

The possibilities are endless, I tell you!
