A Lovely Cuddle!

It has been a very weird week for us, I’m not 100% at the moment and I have had to have some extra appointments. I think Ethan knows something is up but because he is non-verbal we have no idea how much he does understand.

He showed me how much he does understand in a very special way the other day. 
I have written before how Ethan doesn’t cuddle in the ‘normal’ way and how it took me a little while to get used to this, but the other day as I was trying to get out of the door Ethan decided to give me a cuddle.

He was standing on the sofa and he just put his arms around my neck and cuddled me. It was kind of off to the side because of my bump, but I could wrap my arms around him and cuddle him back. No head touching this time. He also patted my back as he did this, as if in a type of comfort.

This is such a big thing for me as I broke my heart when I realised that Ethan doesn’t cuddle in the ‘normal’ way. The terrible thing is I had to rush off for an appointment and all I wanted to do was cuddle him for as long as he wanted too.

I really hope this isn’t just a one off and I will get another cuddle like this again.

There is hope because Darren was able to pick Ethan up from nursery the other day and he too received a cuddle like this.
