the IT city, the I.T. Baby


Shaking hands, developmental problem? neurologist required?

This doesn’t contain an answer, this is just something that happening. One of baby’s teachers noted her hands were shaking a bit while she was eating for the past couple of weeks, and we’ve spent a lot of the past 20 something hours reading up/contacting doctor for appointment/etc.

But we really haven’t observed it, which is odd. I mean there’s a little unsteadiness which I associate with being two years old, but we’ve been locked in on observing her movements while we wait to talk to a pro.

Tonight per internet troubleshooting we’re going to have her stack blocks and see if she gets past a certain point. I think the idea is if they can’t stack blocks at 2 there’s an issue. Unfortunately in my dad manual I never wrote down how many things I’ve seen her stack before.

Potential reasons could be neurological issues (which she was born with the prerequisite lung gunk to get,) blood sugar issues, or hopefully it’s that she’s just so overjoyed to eat she’s trembling. I mean there’s every potential under the sun, but we’ll worry about that after we manage to get her to a quick screening for motor skills.

Meanwhile Hurricane Maggie has decided to fire back up at school, although this is the one time we seem to have an actual reason behind things (she was told she was behaving badly).

Throw in the remnants of hurricane Irma and we’ve got an ominous few days going on.
