Bon Anniversaire

July 17, 2008

We’re coming up on IT Boy’s second birthday, which means we’re starting to get 6 month progress reports from all of his therapists.  The first came yesterday from his PT.  Net net, he’s still in delay mode, but making progress, even if it’s not as much as we would like to see.  She was going over his results and pointed out that in one metric he was at the very “top end of poor” and all it would take was one percentile point to move him into “below average”.  You have to laugh at these things or you cry.  Can’t wait to see OT, Speech and special instruction next week.

Another anniversary, one I had not given much thought to, is being marked by Little IT.  She’s been making a friendship bracelet and when asked who it was for, she said it was an “anniversary” present for her best friend.  “It’s our 7 year anniversary, so we’re giving each other gifts to celebrate.”  I had to point out that they’ve actually known each other for 6 years, but that did little to dampen the enthusiasm.

Marking time, we are.

    Congratulations! I was reading your blog after googling a bunch of stuff on blogher and writing. My son has hypotonia too and only bum shuffled for the longest time (people I see infrequently ask if he “still does that” like he was deliberately moonwalking or something. Sheesh!) These milestones are extra special.
