It was a big decision for us to extend our family. It’s a big decision for anyone, can we afford another baby, do we have enough room, will I be able to love two children at the same time etc. But we have the added worry of autism, a one in five chance that our next child will be autistic. We were advised not to have anymore children, we decided not to listen!
I vowed to myself that I wouldn’t compare my children, that I wouldn’t watch our new baby. Waiting for signs, hoping that I wouldn’t see them. Dreading regression!
I’m not superhuman. I think every mum compares their children’s first milestones, it’s natural, autism or not. So, as with Ethan, I’m celebrating every milestone Little E reaches along the way no matter how big or small.
This week Little E is really cooing and is starting to make lots of noise. I managed to capture it on video for all of the grandparents to see.
For us this is a massive milestone, the reason being Ethan never did this. Looking back he never really made a noise. He started to babble just after he started nursery at two and a half. So we are enjoying every moment of Little E’s cooing and babbling. Even Ethan thinks it’s funny.
I’m keeping everything crossed that this cooing turns into lots and lots of talking.

Oh that is so lovely, it must be so hard not to compare and to look out for the signs but I think you’re right to focus on the positives and enjoy all the milestones you can! May the cooing and babbling continue! Xx #ssamazingachievements
Oh, wonderful Jane, I’m keeping everything crossed for you too x
It is a big worry – but you know that it doesn’t matter even if she does turn out to have Autism, as you will love her just the same. Yay for the cooing and babbling though 🙂
