These pics were taken recently. Whenever we say the word "pray" Connie folds his hands automatically. It's so cute. The other one is before a bike ride to pick up his sister Mookie from preschool.
Connie had two appointments this afternoon. Ms. Deb came and did PT in the afternoon this time so he could go outside in the grass and play. Normally she comes early in the morning when the grass is still wet. He walked around in the grass, walked up a slope in our front yard, played on the little climber in the backyard and practiced putting his hands in the grass to get up and then shaking them off. He should sleep well tonight!
Ms. Jenni came next and weighed him. He is up to a whopping 26 lbs. 9.5 oz.! He's gaining a pound a month and she says that is perfect for his age. She has discharged him from nutrition services since there are no concerns and he is eating and gaining well. He is back up to the 50th %ile for weight for his age. Yay!!
Our service coordinator emailed yesterday and said she wants to set up his meeting to review his IFSP. All the therapists will get together in mid-October and decide what therapies to change. So far, it sounds like we will be discontinuing OT and nutrition and PT will go to a 1X/month monitoring basis and Speech will increase. We're not sure how much they'll increase speech. Now he's getting it 1X/month and he's not saying much of anything. He did say baaaa for bath and maaaaa for mask and /d/ for all done and /b/ for blueberries. Sometimes he mimics a sound pretty well and sometimes he's just not interested.
