Default A little Freaked out

..to say the least.

Presley-Kate is now 15months old(Nov26) and she still isnt walking. She is now crawling and will take steps if you hold her hands. Well we took her to her well baby check and she checked out great with one exception. She has had a sudden spike in head circumference and its off her chart. She has a big head but she should have stayed on her curve. So we go back in a few weeks to have it rechecked. She is looking to see if it spikes again or if she will stay on curve. She said sometimes it happens where they will spike and its called something to do with familia??? (basically hereditary) OR it could be something more. Well me being me, I googled! Shouldnt have. It said I have nothing to worry about UNLESS she is missing her developmental marks like crawling or walking or talking. We she just started crawling BUT she will talk up a storm. I have also read that a sudden spike could mean autism and I may assume that IF she didnt have such a big vocabulary. I have never met a 15month old that talks as well as she does. So I just need you ladies to reassure me and tell this was the case for you or someone you know and that its totally ok and for me not to worry,k?
And on to other news, PK is up to 22lbs even and is 31 1/4" long. She is wearing 12-18months clothes but a tiny size 3 shoe. (maybe thats whys she isnt walking, she has a tiny foot lol) She is so funny and full of personality. She has learned no no and shakes her little finger and I cant help but to laugh when she does it. So adorable. She is absolutely spoiled by her big brothers. They are so good to her. She is the perfect way to complete our family.
I will post pics soon. I am hoping to get some pictures for our christmas cards tomorrow(yeah I am late doing it)
Thanks for listening to me ramble.

Our second DD didn't walk until about 15.5 months old and my niece didn't walk until 17 months old. My niece could walk with assistance if she wanted to but she just preferred not to do it. She's now 7.5 years old and is perfectly normal. She, too, had a large head but it all worked out in the end.

Has PK met all of her other developmental milestones (rolling over, sitting unassisted, etc.)? If so, it's likely nothing to worry about. It's good that your ped is following up on in a few weeks.

She rolled over very early but I think I made a post here because she had stopped. She didnt start again til about 9 months old and crawling about 13 months. She would (and still does) scoot on her butt.

There are many different types of crawls, and the butt-scoot counts as one.

I'd be worried because I'm a worrier, but everything is probably fine. I like that the ped is being proactive on it.

Leann, try not to worry although I know its hard. If I remember correctly, children with Autism have larger heads than normal; but they measure large right from the start. And I think at this stage of the game, you would be seeing more things than just not walking as signs for it. Lexy didnt walk until she was almost 2, and I was told it nothing to do with her Autism. My other two girls have large heads as well, and they dont have a Special Need. My ped made me worry as well and come back in 6 weeks as well, and everything was fine. Trust me, if it were Autism, flags would be up like mile markers.
