The Best Birthday Present Ever!!

While it was one day early, Mark gave me the best birthday present a mommy could ask for yesterday. We had his OT evaluation and PT sessions at Early Intervention and it went great. He did PT first and his therapist thinks he’s made huge progress and is doing great. This is such a relief not only to hear, but to also have the same opinion going into the appointment.
During the OT evaluation he flirted and performed like a champ! Now for those of you who don’t have preemies, they adjust his age. So Mark is being evaluated as a 10½ month old baby instead of 13 months. And my little tough guy is right on track for a 13 month old baby and doesn’t need OT!!! This is the same kiddo that had the motor skills of a 1 month old at 5 months.
It is such a relief to know that the therapy is working and that he is making gains. And it’s the only time I’ve left Early Intervention with only good news! I need to remember this feeling when I feel like things aren’t progressing as quickly as I would like them to. Life is filled with ups and downs, it’s just sometimes hard to remember that when you’re down.

  1. So happy for you!!! I know that feeling and it is the best!! Dawson is going to be exited from early intervention soon and I'm so thrilled with all the progress he's made.
