Joshua's 1 year update

We went to see the pediatrician on the 24th. I can't remember his head circ but got the other stats.

Weight: 21lbs 8oz
Height 29inches

We have already started Early Intervention through Babynet and now we're using the Bright Start agency. He is mostly behind in Gross Motor & Communication but we will be working on Fine Motor as well. He will be getting a Physical Therapist and possibly a Speech Therapist down the road if things don't improve soon. He's still just babbling and it really hasn't increased in the last few months. He can stand but is very wobbly and can't do it himself. He can't sit himself up either. He will take a few steps with assistance but that's it. He has had one appointment with his Early Interventionist and she is looking for a Physical Therapist for him. It's been hard to schedule the appointments though because his schedule changes so often.

He has been putting himself to sleep more and more often which is good but can really change his schedule for the day so it's hard to know when he'll nap when that happens. He is wearing mostly 12 month clothes but he hasn't grown much in length so a lot of pants in that size are too big. He can still wear 9 month clothes too. He is also still in size 3 diapers which he's been in for over 6 months now. I know any day they'll be too small so I'm not buying them more than 1 box at a time. He now has 8 teeth and I'm sure he's working on more.

His eating has greatly improved especially over the past few days. He loves pancakes, grilled cheese and pizza and over Thanksgiving weekend he ate a few new things and now also loves chicken pot pie. He doesn't like pasta though, weird since Jamie & I love it and eat it so often. I guess until he starts eating it we'll be eating it less.
