Ok so everyone has probably seen my posts about my 3.5 yo DS with all of his speech, hyperlexia, low tone, feeding therapy, etc. I had a DD 12.5 months ago and she appears (as I hold my breath and try to not to worry) like she is developing NT. She has been pointing forever, trying to talk, crawled around 7 months and walked by 10.5 months. She is very agile and realized she can climb stuff (so fun)
Anyway, I have been disturbed by a small visible ridge that goes from her forehead to right above her eye. It has not gotten worse nor better. Everyone keeps assuring me she is normal but I can't help thinking that this bump may be a sign. Right before my son's speech stuff was apparent-- he had a period of time where the back of his head grew faster than the front. He had two large "lobes" in the back and then the front caught up a bit. It was sometime between the age of 1-1.5 **I think** which is right where she is. His head was always on the larger end and continues to be, but no ridge.
I have kept myself from Googling until tonight. I found the above condition which is basically described as a head that has its parts of the skull fuse too early allowing the brain little place to go since the skull plates need to move in order for the brain to develop normally, Ignoring this condition could cause blindness, brain damage etc. I can't help wondering if something similar happened to my son or if something is on the horizon with my DD
I am trying not to panic, but as many of us have mentioned, a second or third child feels like you are playing the genetic lottery.
Anyone have experience with this? Dr Google scared the shit out of me!
