I just love Prince Harry. He seems like such a fun guy. When my US Weekly email came today it said something to the effect of "Prince Harry revels big secret" of course I clicked on the link. Turns out he has anxiety. Join the club, handsome. He is part of a movement to support World AIDS Day by reveling a secret about yourself with the hashtag feelnoshame. Honestly, I don't really understand twitter, so I thought I would share here.
I am terrified something is "wrong" with my precious kins. TERRIFIED.
He doesn't babble. He just doesn't.
He also doesn't clap or wave on command (Commands like Hi (we wave), or Bye (we wave), or please baby for the love of your mother WAVE so I don't Lose. My. Shit (we wave desperately). Usually he laughs at us.
Obviously he doesn't talk since he isn't even babbling.
I have reached out to friends of mine who are SLPs and special education teachers. Everyone says they think he sounds fine. No one says "you're crazy stop worrying" (no one of any authority that this).
We called the pedi (royal we, I did it) the week before Thanksgiving and she put in a referral to the early intervention people. They called last Monday and came over the day before Thanksgiving for the intake.
Hub said he thought from the comments of the intake nurse that she thinks kins is fine. I didn't get that impression, but I let hub think that for the time being. Though she did say he was a smarty pants- twice. Anyway.They come over for the evaluation on Thursday morning. I can't breathe.
Kins is interactive, he answers to his name (and to kins, hahaha). He is a physical rock star- he takes a few steps to get from one object to another and he climbed up all 12 stairs Sunday (I'll tell you about that later). He has a mean pincer grip and feeds himself like a champ.
But he won't babble, He's not deaf or even hard of hearing.
#feelnoshame. I am terrified.
PS. I have mentioned the royal family A LOT on this blog. This is strange to me, I am really not much of a royal watcher.
