Developmental Specialst - Aiden's results

The babies had a doctor appointment with the Developmental Specialist at the end of September and we got the results of the visit.

 "His behavior was typical with good waving and eye contact. He had lots of joint attention." His gross motor and fine motor were at 52 weeks, language at 38 weeks, social at 40 weeks, and general development at 10.7 months. The doctor did not find any specific genetic, neurologic or behavioral syndromes. Thank goodness.
He is still going to receive therapy every week for 1.5 hours and occupational therapy once a month for 2 hours through ALTA and we are not going to, at this time, consider any additional therapies through our health insurance. Honestly, he has come leaps and bounds in terms of his social interaction and problem solving.  
I will do Isabella's results in a separate post because I seem to have misplaced them (i.e. one of the kids took them off the counter and likely destroyed them).

I am feeling really good about Aiden's development and progress. But, like anyone who has a child with special needs (I am using that term super loosely...but I don't know what else to call what they are experiencing) will tell you, it seems to be a roller coaster. Just when I start to feel okay and get a handle on things and feel like things are super positive, I have a bad day and feel overwhelmed with worry for my kids. I am okay with them developing slower than their peers; I just don't want something to be wrong.

And it's the "wrong" I live in fear of.
