Lexie I'm so glad he like the jumping on the bed, they usually love it! Our first PT really helped me in that he said to let kids take chances and have fun, of course this got a bit out of hand with our youngest and his tendency to jump off of anything!!! Lol!
Lexie this is in no way to freak you out, but I have found that pediatricians are not the best in catching developmental issues. With both Tom and even Lizzy it was not the doctors who were concerned it was me. I also really worry with the late bloomer thing, yes, there are children who are later than others, but sometimes there is a reason, often small but just tuck that away. You can always make an appointment with a pediatric orthopedist, the good ones can be booked months in advance anyway. Again, realize that I tend to move quickly but I have always felt that I would rather look like an idiot or nervous mom then miss something. Often times picking up a problem early can really mean the difference between a small problem being fixed, and a small problem turning into something harder to fix. Again, realize that I am very proactive, but for me it has meant a huge difference in how my kids have done. Trust your gut. Love you!
