Right on Track

You know, after having five other children, you'd think I'd get this child raising thing down.  You'd expect me to know exactly what to do with a child and when they should be hitting milestones.  But alas, I regret to inform you, I am not the child expert.  So, go read a book or something.  :)  Anyways, Seth had some evaluations done on him to determine where he was cognitively, physically, fine motor, speech and language, etc.  and you know what?  He's right on track!  Take away nearly 3 1/2 months for prematurity, and he's doing everything else 18 month old kiddos are suppose to be doing.  For some reason, I was thinking he was almost a year behind.  But, he has proven me wrong, and when you see something written on paper about what they are suppose to be doing, you say, "hey, yes, he's doing this, what was I so worried about?"   Stress level has dropped significantly here. So, I've given up worrying about his hearing as well.  Come what may!  I'll know what to do as time rolls on.

That's awesome. You know Christina I love sign language. I can "talk" to my kids in sacrament meeting without saying a word and they know exactly what I want them to do! Well at least i know sit, sing, stand, and stop. You know all the important ones. hahahahaa oh and of course I know "no!" hahahahaha.

New saying! "It is what it is", but it doens't mean give up or ignore it. It means look for ways or new ways to help improve, or make better and then "do it". Even if it's just... saying a prayer. =)
