I don't talk about this one a lot, but Spud has a developmental delay. It's not huge, but it is there. The other day I was realizing how much I am focusing on the stuff he still can't do. I think this is normal, that is what we talk about at assessments, I need to know the stuff I should be working on with him etc. In fact it wasn't until I made a list of things he couldn't yet do that I realized that he was way behind and sought out early intervention.
HOWEVER, I now sometimes miss how much he can do and how much he has grown, all I see is the can'ts instead of the cans.
I sat down to make a list and was astounded at how much he has learned since we moved into this house in May.
Since then he has learned to:
* Wash his hands (including turning the tap on and off)
* Go to the potty completely on his own, performing ALL necessary tasks. (Praise God from whom all blessings do flow)
* Blow bubbles
* Pick out his own clothes
* Clean up his room without ANY help
* Pray his own prayers
* Play memory
* Play Candyland (Lucky me!)
* Put on his own shoes
* Dry himself after a bath
* The sounds of most letters
* Trace lines
I know he still has far to go but today I am just going to rejoice at how far he has come.
If your two and a half year old has been doing all these things since they were one, that's fabulous. You go talk about it on your own blog OK?
