Some really good news is that he's crawling on all fours now! He did it for the first time on Tuesday and a little more yesterday. I think he would be doing it more but he's not feeling well. Poor little guy is cutting 2 premolars and not sure if it's from that or he just has a little cold but his nose has been running since Monday. It seems a little better today, we've had a humidifier in his room and it seems to be helping. He is really and truly continuously improving and I'm so happy.

Some more news is that our pediatrician referred us to a developmental pediatrician. All the paperwork has been completed and we should be hearing from them soon. There is a pretty long waiting list so it will be months before we go and maybe by then he won't need it, who knows. I think the next thing to work on after PT will be ST & OT. He is very close to pulling up, getting on his knees a lot.

Next week we are going to see a preschool for kids with developmental delays, they take kids ages 1 & up so if there's room he could start going soon. It would only be 1 or 2 mornings a week to start out with. It's the only one like it in the state (SC) and happens to be in my city, downtown. It's through Epworth which does EI in addition to the preschool. I'm very excited about it.

The PT says Joshua only needs to be in his stander for 30 minutes a day now; two times 15 minutes each. She wants us to work with him on using his left side more. He favors his right hand and uses it more. She is pleased with his progress overall.
