What are Inchstones?
Like most families I celebrated all of the typical milestones with my oldest, JJ. He reached all of his milestones early.. he crawled by five months, he walked by eleven months, cut his first tooth by seven months, he upgraded to a sippy cup by nine months, and so on and so forth.
So what does inchstones mean? Let’s do some math shall we (not my strong suit so bear with me lol):
An inch is an inch.
And 36,650 inches make a mile.
An inch is smaller than a mile but with a special needs child you celebrate every. single. achievement. No matter how small.
No longer needing thickened feeds, consume a 5 oz bottle in less then five minutes (use to take him an hour to consume one whole ounce), and eat small finger/table foods and snacks.
Jaxson just recently started to take two to four steps unassisted AND standing for a couple seconds before plopping down. HUGE ACHIEVEMENTS. Just six months ago he started to army crawl, then he started to crawl on all fours and sit up four months ago, pull up to stand and cut his first tooth three months ago.. and now look at him, 16 months old and taking his first unsteady step.
Potato baby no more!
