Mia Update!!! She 27 months old!

Mia is 27 months old. She weighs in at 24 pounds 6 ounces and stands 34 1/4 inches tall!! She still doesn't talk or walk, but she's cute as can be. Very smart too! She has a new pediatrician who is so wonderful. When we first met him he was insisting she had CP. I explained to him my theory and why the doctors in Hawaii hadn't given her that DX. He was very nice and said he wasn't dx'ing her, but figured she would get that dx and for therapy we should use it. I was fine with it. I left all of her medical records with him and we just met with him on Tuesday! He said: "I have to tell you I need to go back on what I said about CP. I think you are right and after reading what the other doctors say she just doesn't have the normal motor functions on a person with CP!" I was in tears, I know it's just a label and she is who she is, but as long as I can stay away from the 'label' the easier time I have coping. I wish she had a true DX because I want so badly to 'connect' with someone. The ladies from the old BBC are GREAT but I haven't been so GREAT back to them. After all, I left everyone for 4 months! Mia will soon start therapy again but I am no longer into tons of therapy. I see Mia makes progress at her own pace, therapy is a good tool, but double therapies aren't for her. I am looking into more aqua therapy and hippo therapy.

I turned the big Three O in September. My mom threw me a party and had karaoke. Mia was at the party and at the end of the night she insisted she sung. Remember, she doesn't talk. Well, she went up there with more stage presence than the professionals, she picked up the mic, looked at the crowd and blabbed, laughed and had a blast!! My best birthday present!!!!
