In addition, Madison had her PT evaluation occur during the first 15 minutes of her individual speech therapy session at Clarke last Friday March 9. The evaluation occurred at 8:30 am (with her group therapy session from 9-10 am). The physical therapist joined Daddy, Gloria, Madison and Lauren. Upon her arrival she asked, “Does Madison like strangers.” At that point, Daddy knew things weren’t going to go well. Madison is pretty particular with the people she likes…she has her inner circle of females – mainly Mommy, Gloria and Jessica – and isn’t too fond of any other ladies. The therapist takes Madison and then lies her on the ground (on her back) expecting her to move around. Madison doesn’t move at all. She’s frozen, like a mummy. The therapist then tries to “move” Madison and immediately tears begin flowing from Madison’s eyes. The therapist leaves the room and watches from the observation window and Madison becomes a little more mobile. The therapist then re-enters and Daddy and Gloria discuss her movements at home. The therapist believes that Madison is on the cusp of crawling, but if she is not crawling within 4-6 weeks, Madison needs to have another evaluation. After we were done conversing, Madison pointed at the therapist (she loves to point!!!) and then pointed at the door – instructing her to leave. Everyone laughed.
The physical therapist also advised us to have Madison spend as much time as possible on the floor, making sure that we place her favorite toys (or favorite dog!) out of reach, which will encourage Madison to explore… Brian and I are amazed at her progress over these past 10 days. Expect to see a video of the little Miss crawling within the next week or so… She really is THAT CLOSE!
Despite my busy schedule, there is still time for some F-U-N!
Can't beat 70 degree weather in NYC during "the winter" - First time on a real swing... I'm so in love!
I began weekly music class with 6 other babies my age... I love banging on the drum and playing with the rain stick.
Check out my new floor mat.... I spend so much time rolling around learning how to crawl. Somebody else decided to roll around in it as well....
Any guess who the culprit was???
