So I started asking questions at work and 2 of my sweet friends (one OT and one PT) did a quick eval at work yesterday. It's always bothered me that Charlotte doesn't like to bring her arms to midline. When you hold her she holds them out like she's flying, which is apparently because her trunk is weak and she's trying to stabilize herself. My friends showed me several trunk strengthening exercises to do, and recommended that I ask her doctor for a therapy script if she's not better before her 9 month appointment in a couple of weeks. Of course she worked perfectly for Mercy and Melissa during the eval, but when James and I tried to do the exercises tonight, she fought us. Hard. We'll see how it goes.
So OT/PT might be in her future, but at least she'll never have feeding therapy...How cute is she?!
