Miss BJ Visits
For the past 2 years we have had the blessing of having BJ Rafferty come and visit us each month. She is with Infants and Toddlers and has been coming to the house to make sure that we are comfortable with the progress Abraham is making in his development. Because he was a preemie, sometimes development is slower than normal. But BJ has never had any serious concerns about Abraham's growth - it has been more for our peace of mind to know tht he is on track for his age.
She was over about a month ago and did a 24 month assessment on him - which he happened to pass with flying colors... and he wasn't even 24 months yet. BJ was quite taken with his verbal skills as well as how good his fine motor skills have gotten. He sat with her for a while and laced blocks on to a shoe lace. I didn't even know he could do that!
We were released from the program and told to keep on doing whatever we are doing. I don't think that it is anything we have done... he gets most of it from great day care... plus the fact that he is just REALLY smart!! NO, I'm not biased!
We will miss BJ but we are grateful for the time that she spent to make sure we were doing well. She is a dear lady and I wish her the best!
