Anyway, I explained to our kind pediatrician (who, for the record, was also my Hubby's pediatrician when he was growing up. My Hubby went to school with said Dr.'s children. Yep, it's a smaaaaalll town.) that Baby wasn't really "talking" yet at 2 years old. He stopped me in mid-explanation to interrupt me with the comment "Please don't compare him to your older two children"....which I admit, I am TOTALLY doing. But still...
My pediatrician was not in the least bit worried about Baby's lack of speech. At over 2 years old?! Don't get me wrong, I totally realize that Baby has 2 older brothers who do
Hear a helicopter overhead? That's me....the hovering Mommy. I went ahead anyway and called EI (Early Intervention) to set up an appointment for a speech evaluation for Baby. They will call me back within 10 days to set up a consultation.
So those of you with only one child? Who feel uncertain about your parenting decisions? That feeling stays with us. No matter how many children you bear. Here I am with #3, feeling more uncertain than ever! Am I being crazy? But what can a consultation with Early Intervention hurt? (God, he'll have people actually paying attention to him 1 on 1...) But are they going to laugh at me? Why is it that since I called them, Baby has picked up about 10 new words? Is this a conspiracy?
I need a drink.
