Gratituesday: God's Timing


Today I am SO thankful for God's perfect timing. At her one year check-up, our doctor decided that our silly little Gracie might be developmentally delayed in her gross motor skills. She was not yet standing or even pulling herself up to a sitting position on her own. He wisely wanted to err on the side of caution and referred us to a local neurological doctor to have her evaluated further. When I called to make the appointment, there was a 2-month waitlist.
Her appointment was scheduled for this coming Thursday. We took her into her pediatrician for a quick evaluation today. Since her 1-year appointment, she has been progressing by leaps and bounds. She now sits on her own and pulls herself up to stand all the time. She will shuffle along the couch while holding on or walk behind a push toy. The doctor decided that we will continue to watch and evaluate her, but for now we can cancel her appointment with the neurologist! Praise the Lord!

Could your daughters development delays be attributed to her diet? Did the Doctor give you a reason for this occurence? You mentioned in another one of your posts that 2 of your other children had some similar issues?

Hi Kate,
God's timing is perfect indeed.
I am glad to hear this news and I'm sure you are so relieved.
Kids are so different in how they progress. I think people worry too much too soon sometimes, causing needless anxiety. But, I suppose it's better to be safe than sorry!

I love God's perfect timing! Gracie looks like she's doing perfectly! What a sweetie!

That is so wonderful. God always has a plan.

My youngest did not walk until she was 18 months old and then took off with no developmental problems again. I think she was just too lazy to walk. Why walk when you can be carried or crawl where you want to go? lol

Oh, I'm so glad things are going better for your Gracie! She's a cutie!!!

What great news!! My youngest did not walk until she was 16 months old, and each kid develops in their own way.

I'm glad you don't have to see the specialist. I agree that each kid does things at their own pace, and would bet that your daughter had other areas besides gross motor where she was right on track or ahead of 'schedule.'

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
