Milestone Monday: What happened to my little girl?

What happened to my immobile, quiet little baby? She must be growing up. Because now she is commando crawling all over and screaming when she doesn't like something or when she wants something.

Princess has learned to sit up all by herself, so between the commando crawling and the sitting, she's NEVER still any more! Won't J be happy? I blame him! =)

She is also holding her own bottle and drinking it all by herself. I just plop her on the floor with her bottle and she goes at it. Yes, there are times when she screams because she drops it and can't figure out how to get it back to her mouth, but otherwise, she does fine feeding herself her bottle! No, she can't feed herself the bottle sitting up, but this picture was just too cute!

She is also waving "hi" to everyone! She is so cute about it too! Unlike Little Man who did the whole finger wave thing, she uses her whole arm! Surprisingly I caught this on camera when I was getting her picture for Rare Disease Day!

She is so close to actually getting up on all fours and crawling away. And sadly, I think it would take one of those huge play yard things (you know, people put puppies in them) to contain her in this house. Pretty soon, NOTHING will be safe. That is why, this week, I am having Little Man crawl around on the floor (he loves doing it anyway) to see what Princess can get in to.

Oh, we also painted her/our room this past weekend. Yeah, it's her room, I just sleep in it. We are currently working on sleep training. I am trying to get her back into her crib. Last night went pretty well, save for the fact we had an earthquake and a torrential downpour that woke BOTH kids up at 2am. Hopefully tonight will be better.

And I am in the process of planning her first birthday! Oh my, is it really less than 3 weeks away? Where has the last year gone?

Developmental Clinic from February!

Well, we had our big follow up at the hospital's developmental clinic back in February! I made our developmental therapist, J, take us. I figured it was important that we all be on the same page with her development and doing the same things.

So at the clinic, things were about the same as her 9m (really her 10m) appointment:

Weight: 16lbs 2.5oz
Length: 25.5in

I didn't know what to expect, but it was pretty basic. Met with one of the PTs. They assessed Princess. She did amazing! Of course they were looking at her like a 7m old, not a 10m old. But that's fine.

Met with the doc. She checked her out. Things were fine. I knew they would be. Got the weight and length above. Then, as we were waiting for the social worker, they came in and delivered her PT assessment. She assessed at 7m for gross motor/fine motor and communicative/expressive language. So that's what they expect. But she assessed at 10m for her cognitive abilities! J said that was why they didn't look at adjusted age for the county early intervention. Sometimes this happens and then you have a weird gap. So instead, they look at actual age and work on getting them "caught up."

Social worker suggested we apply for SSI. I don't know if we'll get it, or even if I'll apply. Maybe. Otherwise, we go back in November, so I should be hearing from them soon. So, if my math is correct, they wanted to see her when she was at least 6m adjusted (she was 7m adjusted) and November would be at least 15m adjusted (I think it'll be 16m adjusted or so). So I think they'll be looking for her to be walking. I think I have her adjusted age right. That's why I put the ticker! The ticker will disappear probably either at 2 or 3 years old. I don't adjust her age. I just let her be!
