Adam's Developmental Check-up

This morning Adam had his 2 year old developmental check-up with the health visitors. They arrange it in groups of toddlers of the same age. Basically they just sit down with us, and talked about feeding and healthy eating, potty training, fine and gross motor skills, social skills, speech development etc. I thought the session was very good, basically just making sure that they are reaching the skills that they're supposed to reach at this age...I wanted to raise the issue on speech development especially because I was a little concern that eventhough his speech is developing, it might be slower than expected. But after talking to them, apparently Adam's speech is just fine and there is nothing to worry about. However if after a few months I'm still concerned, they can refer us to speech therapists just to help him develop his speech..

I find it so impressive that they have this check-up for free here. Upon reaching 2 years old, Adam immediately get a letter from the health visitors. It's amazing how attentive they are to children's welfare and developments.

Later during the afternoon, Adam had another appointment with the GP for his immunisation. The immunisation schedules here are a little different, and apparently Adam had missed one jab. Risau jugak tadi..because the last time he had his jab, he was much younger and wasn't really aware of what's going on. Today, he actually thought we were there to check on the Baby. After a while, he looked a little suspicious because the doctor and nurses keep checking him, and he knew we were talking about him. When he had the jab, i initially thought he would struggle and maybe cry. But he just looked a little shocked..and then buat muka tahan tanak nangis...pastu the nurse terus offered him a panda sticker for being so brave...upon seeing the sticker, all was already forgotten..terus happy giler...as if the jab never even happened...haha...

very strong and brave Adam...proud of you...muahs!

p/s: Turns out I do have gestational diabetes! Sigh...i have an appointment tomorrow with the diabetic midwife..will tell full story later...

wah what a brave boy... dan bestkan service kat sana. You don't need to see paed for things like children development etc... dgn health visitors saja, dan semuanya free... dan semua org is entitled to ensure anak2 membesar dgn sihat. kat msia nih, kalau jumpa GP mmglah hampeh... sbb pun namanya GP (general practitioner), mmglah tak blh nak berkata2 banyak pasal kids. Boring. Kat sana, semua org specialist in their area, kalau health visitor walaupun bukan seorg doc, but they have deep knowledge in their work/chil development. Nurse pun bagus2... wah... i miss NHS.
