After having Stella the way I look at milestones has changed dramatically. It's the small things, the little milestones that I never even thought of as milestones before having a child who is differently abled.
Have you ever pointed your finger at someone, or something? Yes?? It takes some serious fine motor skills to be able to bend three fingers, then have your thumb on top of one of these bent fingers. But wait, you must then leave your index finger UP!!! Not work for you, but for Stella, this took her a bit of time to figure out. Now? Well now she is a pointing genius!! She points at everything!
