We took Luke and Irina for their follow up appointment at the International Adoption Clinic. Both of them are making progress and look to be in great health! The Dr. noted that Luke's activity level and impulsiveness is probably impacting some of his developmental progress. He really has made a lot of gains, but he is Mr. Distraction (and actually swung from the chandelier this week! UGH! We thought we had overcome that one with the loss of several cookies. I guess it had been awhile though, so he needed to test it out again!). We will continue to follow up with the Developmental Pediatrician about addressing these concerns with Luke.
Irina has made significant gains. She has improved around 8-9 months in her gross motor skills in the last 6 months. The Dr. also said "a diagnosis in the autism spectrum no longer seems likely"!!!! How awesome is that? God is so good! I am amazed at the changes we have seen in just the few months that they have been home. It's funny, it feels like they have always been here, but it has only been 7 months. We feel so blessed that God chose us to parent these two crazy kids!:)
