Zachary is 8 Months!

Well here we are again...
I am now embarking on my favourite baby months. I love how they start to interact, their independence, and new ways to get around.
And speaking of ways to get around, I called Bloorview last week to see if we could start on some physio. (a little bit annoyed that we haven't already been set up on a program) They told me Zachary's next clinic day was in February. February? He'll be one by then...that's a lot of lost time in seeing what his potential is and how we can help him get there. I left a message with the physiotherapist.
A couple of days later I got a phone call from Grandview (a local childrens therapy centre) from their physio department.  I just figured Bloorview had made a referal, but 20 minutes after I made the appointment, I got a call from Bloorview!  So now we have two appointments. I am just fine with that. I like the fact I have 2 opinions and one that is close to home.
We went to Grandview on Wednesday for our first assessment. And our rockstar of a baby is right on track for an 8 month old! Music to my ears :)
We will go there for the next 3 weeks to start a program.
We head to Bloorview on Monday. I am excited to see what they have to say.

So here are a few pics of our little man!

  1. Yay!
    we have been seeing Kim at Bloorview, and we see Melissa (PT) and Sheka (OT) at Grandview. I think they got a bunch of new hires, becasue our 8 month wait at Grandview went to a 6 month wait...
    That's really weird that you wouldn't get clinic until February!
    Have you been able to see infant development? I was told that most people are told they need to wait months, but with a diagnosis they should be picked up pretty quick.
    One of the things I love about the group on Thursday at Bloorview is that you can ask people directly all of those questions that you have. Hopefully you can make it to the November one.
    Email me if you want to go for coffee or something in the meantime.
    Wow 8 months! Look at how interested he is in things!
