Okay, so that's a lie. But she is ALMOST normal, at least developmentally speaking, according to our pediatrician at her well-child check today.
She got gold stars of mastery for:
* FINE MOTOR
She is still delayed in the gross motor arena, but we didn't expect to hear anything different. She was able to do all the tasks she was asked to do, except for standing on one foot without support. She can jump with two feet! She can walk up the stairs without holding on (using one of her legs, the stronger one) if I am behind her to ensure she doesn't rock back too far! She can stand and scoot forward in her skates using a shimmying motion! She's getting there. She still can't run, she still struggles to stand or walk on uneven ground most of the time. Her balance and muscle tone just aren't quite there yet, but she is steadily improving.
She is 39.25 inches tall (50%) and weighs 33.5 pounds (45%)! The tube triumphs again!
She hasn't missed school in 3 weeks!
She hasn't had an episode in (almost) 6 months!
She has even been eating a bit more by mouth!
Basically, you know, HOORAY! Four is off to a wonderful start.
