Emma and Jacob had doctor’s check-ups this afternoon. Emma needed to get the last few shots before school starts in August and Jacob was scheduled for his 15 month shots (even though he’s 17 months now).

Jacob is still not walking, even though he is finally pulling himself to a standing position and walking along things. This had the doctor a little concerned. He thought by now he’d be a little further along (at least attempting).
We talked about his progression and Dr. Chowdry gave me the number for Early Childhood Intervention Services. It’s a free service with the State, but I need to get an appointment to have him evaluated to see if he qualifies for therapy or other services.
I have to say that I’m not particularly fond of the fact that I need to call these people, but it’s not really about what I want at this point. It’s about what is best for Jacob and his development. I hope we can resolve this soon.
