Re: Need to learn about CP

Thank you so much for your advice! I will look online for those toys. My little one sounds very much like your daughter. He definately is more relaxed when feeling secure. He is very tight in the mornings and more relaxed in the evenings. I just took him for his 16 month check up and I was devastated. The doctor told me he is at a 3 mo. old level and that I should re-think my expectations for him. Said that I should have very low expectations for him. Needless to say, it was like all the air was sucked out of the room. I do have high expectations for him. I know he isn't my own child, but while I have him, I am going to have high expectations for him. My hope for him is that he will be happy and be able to communicate and be mobile in some way, just like your little girl. It is so encouraging to hear how well she is doing. I am so happy for your family. Thank you for the encouragement and helpful advise. Very encouraged tonight.
