This week Morgan Kate's EI and PT came for our sessions. It just so happened that MK's nap time fell during both sessions so she was quite cranky. Both days we had to stop early and she fell fast asleep. This week we actually have PT twice. In months where there are five weeks we get an extra PT session. Nice. Also, MK will start receiving occupational therapy (OT) very soon. From what I understand, OT is not that different from PT. It will be like getting PT twice a week, which is good for us. Many premature babies have tight muscles and PT/OT really helps with this. Morgan Kate kicks her legs all the time and she loves to stand now so her leg muscles are good, but the muscles in her arms are much tighter and she has a harder time using them. She can grasp things and she will reach for things when she is sitting in her Bumbo or in my lap, but she still will not reach up for things or reach for things when she is lying (laying?) on the floor. I know it will all come in due time, but PT and OT will help a lot. I'm just thrilled that she is able to get all of these terrific services. Like I have said before, I have already seen vast improvements.
I am off to bed. It has been a long day and on top of things I went grocery shopping this afternoon.
My weekly trip to Wal-mart. You know, the trip where you intend to spend only this amount of money and come out having spent double. Yeah. Gets me every time. Oh, and for all of you with little girls, avoid the clothing department at all costs. Wal-Mart has THE cutest little dresses and outfits for this summer and you will just get sucked in. I did.
