Developmental assessment when a baby is tired

I had some concerns about my 7-month-old not meeting his gross motor milestones, and I set up an evaluation with our state's Early Intervention program. The team was late and by the time they showed up at our house, my son was way overdue for his nap and very tired; when the team was done, my son nursed himself to sleep in about 30 seconds. The team agreed he had some mild motor delays, not enough to warrant services. But then the developmental therapist, who did her evaluation last and was looking at some combination of cognitive and fine motor skills, said my son was three to four months delayed. This came as a big shock, since we hadn't had any concern in those areas, and obviously worries me. While I wait to ask the DT who will be assigned to us, I'm hoping the hive mind can help me tease out what effects my son's exhaustion might have had on this evaluation. Specific concerns and questions are under the fold. [more inside]

Should our baby be doing more?

I'm really hoping I'm just worrying for nothing. We have a ten month old baby girl. She is a very heavy baby. Compared to her little playmates, she doesn't seem anywhere near as developed. [more inside]

Can babies typically twist their tongues completely over?

My eight month old daughter can (and frequently does) horizontally rotate her tongue 180 degrees in her mouth. Is this something that children her age can typically do, or should I be negotiating with a circus? [more inside]

Baby Einstein

What should I be doing to help my baby's development? Baby Ava is now 6 months old and she is starting to really become a little person. Mommy and daddy talk to her, read to her, sing to her, play various style of music for her. She plays with blocks, rattles, and spends a little time in an exersaucer. What else can we do to help her mind grow and her body develop?
