A few minutes of freedom from the no-no's
Now, onto Miss Nora. Developmentally Nora "tests" at about 10-months with emerging 12-month skills. BUT, she is growing developmentally by leaps and bounds every day. Because of this, at this time, she isn't being recommended for occupational or physical therapy. We will, however, keep working with an early childhood instructor in our community to set goals and continue to "encourage" Nora to grow.
On the speech side, Nora "tests" at about 6-months. This will be one of our most challenging areas. We have a lovely speech therapist who will be coming to our house to work with Nora (and us) a couple of times a month. Not only will she help with speech, but she will help with eating as well as Nora continues to learn to use her new, rearranged lip and her palate.
Hey Girl, what's so funny?Now, onto one of my favorite things - her stats! Nora is 18 pounds, 6 ounces (not on the charts yet, but we expect that will change as she continues to recover). And, she is 30 inches long (just barely on the charts - 8th percentile).
Um, yes, we are watching you!Four immunizations today as our pediatrician is getting her caught up, poor baby.
She is a mischievous little beauty, and we love her so!
