We have an appointment for a PT assessment tomorrow afternoon because A is still barely supporting her weight and can not pull herself up. She can get to her knees, but it's like she doesn't have the strength to get to her feet. The way she holds her feet when I'm trying to make her stand is weird. She rolls her ankles and uses the sides of her feet. I don't know if it's her trying to get back down or what.
Keep us posted. LO is the same age i think (10.5 months) and is not pulling up either. Possible moty here but i am not concerned? Lmk if i should be...
I think the concern may be because she can't bare weight much? Pulling up is a different thing. If you can put your LO in a stand holding on to something and they stand for a bit is probably more what they want to see happening at this age.

We saw the PT today. She assessed her and scored her at a 9 month level. She's 10 months and 23 days. So a little delayed, but not a ton. She said since she is otherwise acting and playing like a baby her age, to just keep working with her and using lots of motivation to get her up and standing. We go back 2/28 for another appointment and if A is pulling up, bouncing when she is standing, cruising the furniture, and taking some steps while assisted, she will be discharged. Otherwise we will see what else we can do. So not a huge concern, but we have some work to do to catch up. I loved the therapist. She made me feel good about bringing her in, but not worried that anything was seriously wrong. I didn't feel stupid with all my stupid questions.

I took M for a PT/OT assessment. They based it on her adjusted age (so 5 weeks early). OT recommended nothing, her fine motor skills are amazing. But the recommendation is for 1 hour a week of PT. So now the regional center decides if they will offer title to us if we qualify based on the evaluation. I have no idea what they look at, but I'm waiting for a call to tell me if we get to schedule the therapy.

I have one walker - D was taking 1-2 steps and pivoting when he was 11 months (9.5 adjusted) and confidently walking before his first birthday. He's fast now and prefers walking to crawling because it's easier to carry things. Since he always takes his sister's stuff as well as his own, there's lots to carry!
E is so so ready to walk. She stands unassisted and shakes her booty and claps but she won't do it until she's 100% confident. The past couple days she's been a bit of a grump and I think it's because D keeps taking her stufff and running away and she needs to get down to crawl and chase him - so I think I will have 2 walkers soon!!
We still aren't having much luck with shoes but I think that's normal? LO is a full blown walker and semi a runner without them... she can change directions turn a corner, hold a toy, etc. She loves to walk outside. I have made her a few pairs of soft shoes, like the roobez style ones and she can walk in those almost as well as barefoot but she cannot figure out the sneakers! Also she is so tiny and she looks so grown up walking alone, like a mini adult... it's so cute, people comment on it all the time though when we are out. One day at lunch another mom came up to me and was like "I'm sorry I don't mean to be rude but how old is your daughter" I told her, and she was like "omg thank goodness my son is way bigger than her but he can't do any of this stuff I see her doing I was just having a little panic attack that he was behind"
