So Early Intervention (EI) came over this morning to evaluate Jules. The general concensus was that she was at about 12 months in everything (verbal, large and small motor, eating habits, etc - she just turned 19 months a few days ago...although she was born a month early, so technically 18 months). Which is good, considering she didn't develop ANYTHING for 8 months, until she started the NG feeds. So, I personally think she's progressing really great for a kid who went through what she did, and I'm not too particularly worried about anything. I mean, I wish she would walk, and I wish she would eat so we didn't have to worry about the NG - but I know she's developing, and if she was really 12 months and not 18/19 months, I wouldn't be worried about it, KWIM? She'll walk and eat well someday, probably soon. Cognitively (how well she understands things, following directions, etc) she tested at around 20/21 months, which is great.

At the moment she can say about 6 "real" words, one combo word ("uh-oh" lol), and a whole bunch of words in Julia's private language that I know what they mean but no one else does lol When she doesn't want you to do something, or doesn't want something she'll shake her head no and say "nuh-uh". When she wants to watch Blues Clues she does the hand thing (anyone know what I mean? lol "blinking" your hands? like he does in the theme song), she points to things she wants (or just goes and gets them lol). She can help me dress her, yada yada.

Someone clue me in here: the PT said that she didn't "rotate". Like, she stands up/sits down/gets into a crawling position by going between her legs, rather than bending to one side (like side-sitting). I'm not entirely sure why it matters one way or another, so maybe someone on here knows? What's the difference HOW she stands up, if she stands up? lol
I predict a riot.

Sounds like she's doing great. As far as the standing from sitting postition...I'm not sure why it matters. Seems like Brandon gets to standing from different positions. I bet she'll be walking in no time, from the sound of it, she's doing all kinds new things all the time!

Sounds to me like she is doing really well if she is at a 12 month level and didn't start making progress until late!!! As for the way they sit and stand Paige's PT worked on that with her and said that the reason is because they want them to use and develop different muscles. Paige would just plop down on her butt when she was done standing. Paige is not walking yet either...but is really close, she is pulling up on things but does not stand unassisted. I know that her and Jewels started sitting in the same week so maybe they will start walking at the same time too!!! lol
