He sounds like a fun lil guy Does he point? Hayley will look at something and then look at me like "I want that" She will however follow where I point to an extent.

Yeah he learned to point a few months back. Every morning when he wakes up he points at his bedroom door (as in I want to go downstairs). He also waves when you say bye bye. When it's bedtime I say 'go say night to dad' and he runs over to my partner waving at him

Aww that's excellent. Hayley doesn't wave yet. Still working on that. Thomas is doing a lot of good things, he doesn't seem to be delayed very much. Let's just hope they catch up in their own time.

You'd be surprised, compared to other kids his age he's very behind especially speech wise.

Hayley had her eye appointment Tuesday and she was diagnosed with mild amblyopia. We have to patch both her eyes alternating days. So like right eye Monday Wednesday and friday. Left eye Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Only for an hr a day though. She's doing well with it so far. No specs for now

How's T?

Aw bless! I had patches as a child

He's ok. Not much of an improvement. He did stack a few toys the other day which I was impressed with

Hiya Tegan has GDD, she was around 18 months behind last september, she's up for another assesment this year and I am dreading it I feel like the older she's getting the bigger the delay. Her speech is quite severely delayed, she doesn't speak as well as my (slightly advanced) 2yr 10 mo old niece and she is five this month.
She also needs glasses, her vision is quite poor. She is meant to be going into year 1 in September, and I really don't think she's ready. I know I'm not ready for her to go into year 1.
Basically when she was born we were told she could be anywhere between cognitively normal, and severely learning disabled. Since she already has quite severe physical disabilities and her health is generally poor (she has spina bifida and is paraplegic, doubly incontinent, hydrocephalus, chiari malformation, two clubbed feet, dislocated hips, muscle contractions in her legs), I was really hoping that she would be developmentally average, but it turns out she's not.
Anyway, I'm really tired but I will be back tomorrow

Oh that's a lot to deal with

Is there a way to delay her going into year 1? I don't think I'd be happy with it either and if T is still delayed by next September I don't think I want him to start either.

Are you getting a lot of support?

We had a bit of a break through today. Thomas finally managed to complete a shape sorter. The triangle and star shapes have been a problem for him but he did them today

It's his birthday next week and he has 2 appointments that day. One with his plastic surgeon and one with his occupational therapist. I hope those go well. We're still waiting for a specialist HV, there's around 20 children on the waiting list.
