Today was my occupational therapy evaluation with Wendy. Since I had just been to the office last week for my speech/feeding evaluation I was content to play in the waiting room until I was called back. Once in the room, I was interested to see a maze of mats for playing on. There were mat stairs leading up to a mat slide and it only took a few minutes before I warmed up and started exploring while Mommy answered some questions for Wendy.
Before long it was time to get down to business and Wendy put me in a little chair with a table so I could "play". I worked on stringing beads, taking lids off of a container, etc. My favorite part, though, was when she pulled out some tiny Peyton sized scissors and I got to cut paper. Mommy was just a wee bit horrified at the thought of me cutting but I did very well and when I was done my fingers were intact! I was so good Wendy even gave Mommy the scissors for me to take home!
Two hours after we started the fun and games came to a screeching halt when I peed through my diaper (those things can only hold so much apparently) and after a quick diaper change and a fresh pair of pants it was time to leave. Since I am getting my hand surgery next week, Wendy is going to focus on my left hand after the cast comes off so we probably won't be doing much therapy until then.
