I feel very torn because while I know he is doing well considering, he is definitely physically behind (there's that "doing well considering" problem I have). Movement is so much more of a struggle for him than for Nolan but we shouldn't be surprised because the early weeks of his life were full of struggle that Nolan didn't have to face. Jordan assures me that he is doing well and being behind is ok - he has time and therapy to help him catch up. I know I can't ask any more of either of them than what they are doing, but it's hard for me that both of them, at their corrected age of 5 months, are well behind where Rio was. I know it's silly for me to compare them to each other and especially to Rio, but it's hard not to.
A very positive outcome of today is that our PT saw Asher moving more in general than she had last week, an observation I had also noticed in the past few days. Now both she and IDP worker are on holidays so we won't have another IDP assessment till early August and a PT visit till mid August. Here's hoping in the next month we see more positive changes for both boys.
