This thread is so nice! To meet the new momma's, and also to catch up with the current August ladies! It's so hard to keep track of who everyone is!

I am Lisa, and have a son E. He was born on 8/18/11. I go through spurts where I post here somewhat often (for me at least!) then I may disappear for weeks (or months!). E was behind in gross motor for awhile, but seems to be catching up now. He rolled over really late (I forget when, off the top of my head, but I know it was after 9 months), started "crawling" late, and didn't walk until 16.5-17 months. But now he's a walking man! We had been doing PT with him since about 9 months old, but will be discharged in a couple months if he continues to do well. He has two genetic disorders (one passed down from me, and one that appears to be a spontaneous mutation) and is followed by genetics, opthalmology, and cardiology. Both conditions can cause a spectrum of issues/manifestations, from very minor to severe. (My manifestations are very minor). So far he seems to be doing well, so we are keeping our fingers crossed. He is at a higher risk for a certain type of brain tumor, and will have to get MRIs periodically. 50% of patients with one of his genetic conditions develop glaucoma.

I work full-time outside the home, investigating abuse & neglect in adults with disabilities. My husband (E's dad) works full-time as well, so E goes to day care full time!
