Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

One of the most stressful things about being a new mom is worrying about your child meeting developmental milestones. I remember being so worried when it seemed like our first may or may not have been hitting each milestone right on time. But is it really as big a deal as we think?
Here to share more about supporting your child’s motor development from infancy and beyond is Meg Garhan. Meg is a pediatric physical therapist working at a large pediatric hospital in Chicago. She works in the NICU, specializing in seeing babies both inpatient and outpatient, as well as kids of all ages for developmental delays and injuries.
In this episode, we discuss:
What developmental milestones are and when parents should be concerned if their child is not reaching them.
Why tummy time is so important even after infancy.
Which toys do more harm than good for motor development.
How to encourage and promote motor development throughout your child’s life.
