When we went to my daughter's 18 month old check up they told me they had some concerns about her development. Physically she's fine...It's that there are some milestones she a bit borderline on. Those are the doctors words, not mine. I asked what was wrong, where she was falling behind, and that was their answer. That she might be border line. What have I missed..? She she doesn't use a lot of words, she is vocal, it's just you can't always understand. She follows some instructions, but not all. She's stubborn, like me. She doesn't talk to other toddlers a lot, but that's because she not around 'toddlers', she spend more time with me, her 8 year old brother and her dad. She doesn't spend a lot of time in front of the mirror, so she doesn't interact with her reflection that much, she did try to touch it though. She also would rather just eat with her hands and not a spoon. I'm at a loss, they are referring first steps to us, and I'm at a loss. She was three weeks early when she was born and after two weeks she was severely jaundice and had to go back to the hospital. She's also been prone to ear infections,some that didn't come with a fever. Like I said, I'm at a loss, what could be wrong with my baby. I have to admit I'm scared, did I miss something...what could I have done? What is wrong with my little peanut?
