Therapy It Is.

Well-Check Summary:
Jax weighs 26 lbs, is 32 in long, has quite a heart murmur, which for now they plan to keep an eye (ear) on, is somewhat delayed in speech but they’re giving him the 7 week leeway because of prematurity, is being referred for occupational therapy for his sensory/oral/IHateFood issues, got 3 shots, and screamed for hours. And he bit me.

He went down for bed early, and Mama needs some serious R&R.

Although his pediatrician would like to refer us to their OT, my mom thinks we can get (FREE) therapy for speech and sensory through Early Childhood Intervention. And they come to your house! So let’s hope that his prematurity, our income, etc qualify us for services from them!

And earlier, before his world came crashing down over injection aftermath + teething. His hair is growing like CRAZY now! He looks like a tiny mad scientist with the way his curls come up on the side of his head. Hilarious!

    Aw, I’m sorry he got so upset and bit you!
    I would be lying if I said Jackson has never bit me… or that I didn’t totally freak out when he did. Sometimes I think I have a 2 year old trapped in a 1 year old’s body!

    My nephews have had state-funded speech therapy and physical therapy and it has been MAGNIFICENT! Plus, coming to the house is awesome!

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    That last picture is tooooo cute!! So just curious, if you dont go to therapy what happens? I just sometimes think man kids have to live up to so many medical standards these days…

    Jess, if we didn’t do therapy, his eating habits probably wouldn’t ever change, at least not for a very long time. I’m not worried about his speech delay AT ALL, it’s the sensory integration issues that cause a problem. I NEED (for my sanity and Jax’s..90% of meals end in gagging, vomiting & tears, sometimes for me too) him to eat like a normal toddler. He can’t handle any textures in his mouth at all, and it can start to affect his nutrition and health since there are so few foods he will eat. I hope something helps soon!

    He will qualify for ECI for sure! They help lots with sensory integration issues.
