The doctor is concerned that LO is behind in a few areas based on scoring my responses on the development form from the nine-month appointment. I didn't get to see the scores to know exactly where the concerns are, but I checked an article on what to worry about, and LO isn't doing these things:
- Play games that require back-and-forth play
- He gets excited with things like peekaboo and "How Big is LO", but he doesn't try to hide his own face or spread his arms on his own, for example.
- Respond to his name
- Actually, he responds to his name, but he just responds to everything that I say. He looks at me and giggles if I say his name, "Pancakes!", or some made-up word.
- Look where I point
- He just looks at my hand.
Thoughts on any of this? Before the appointment, I thought he was doing fine, but I hadn't looked at things like that to get me worried beforehand.
