Caleb is almost 15 months old and we went to the doctor yesterday. She is referring him to a physical therapy place so that they can try to get him walking. He's so lazy he hasn't really tried on his own. He will walk if you hold his hands but other than that he isn't interested. We also have to watch his vocabulary because he still only says mama and dada and babbles. I know there's nothing really wrong with him I just dont think he's trying very hard. It still worries me, as it would anyone would about their child. Hopefully they will get him to start walking and he will gain the confidence to do more things on his own. I think he might be anemic also so I am going to get some vitamins and see if that improves how easily he gets cold. I get cold too so I'm not too worried but I probably need to take vitamins too :P

Caleb's stats:
19.6 lbs
29.5 inches
Current Mood: worriedconcerned

My daughter went to Physical Therapy from 3 months until just recently. Does you state have an Early Intervention program? It's a free/low cost program for children 0 - 3.

That's what it is. At least I know I'm not alone.

Oh no, not at all! You're totally not alone.

At the time of the assessment I wasn't convinced she really needed it. I mean, their criteria for her treatment was something like she can't put her hands together while she's lying on her back. And also, she couldn't lift her heaad up while on her stomach. But I went ahead and did it. She enjoyed the sessions and I think it did her a world of good. She started walking at 12.5 months.

You can read about it in my daughter's journal winnemac

Caleb sounds alot like Dylan. She will try to walk as long as Dad and I aren't around. If we are she will go 5-6 steps tops unless we are holding her hand.
She does have a few more words, but not many...
they are even close to the same size.

I'm sure that he is fine. They all go at their own pace.

I know, it just makes me wonder sometimes.

yep.. me too.
I have to remember to not compare her to her older cousin.
