I had thought to write with an extended metaphor about obstacle courses, but I found it trite. Just imagine I made one. You know, challenges, overcoming them, getting stronger. Done and done.

Lately, I've been reading a lot from parents of older kids, parents focused on issues that seem very remote - driving, dating, menstruation! There was a whole discussion of sensory integration issues that some of their kids have. Even the stuff that happens when he turns 3, in terms of his therapies being run through special ed. and the school system, seems far away. But it's interesting to see these older kids, to hear from their parents, and think about where our life could be heading.

The long and short of it is that Nico is very healthy (despite potential thyroid troubles), very happy (despite teething), and delayed to varying extents in pretty much every category. None of the delays are a big deal, but all of them are real, and confronting them can be difficult. On the bright side, we have four therapists who come to our home every week and play with our child and train us, and most of the therapies are fun.
