    Ethan Said Daddy!

    Whilst the boys are having a cat nap and I quickly eat my lunch before starting the shopping list I thought I would share with you the fantastic moment we had this morning so that it is documented before our busy lives take over.   Darren had a boys night out last night and stayed over his friends and whilst Ethan and I were eating breakfast Darren text us to say hello. I turned to Ethan and said “It’s Daddy!” and Ethan, as clear as a bell said, Daddy! I couldn’t believe it so I quickly called Darren and put him on loud speaker to let him know what had happened and…

    Walt Disney World – Day 5 – Magic Kingdom – Fantasyland Continued and Lunch at The Crystal Palace

    After taking in the sights of the NEW FANTASYLAND area we returned to FANTASYLAND to go for a ride on the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel.  Both Ethan and I picked a carrousel horse and Darren kept Ethan safe. Ethan wasn’t sure what was going on at first and tried to get off of his horse before the ride started, Ethan can be quite impatient when it comes for waiting for things but I also put this down to the lack of verbal communication we have at the moment. We can explain things to Ethan but we have no idea if he understands as he can’t tell us if he does. When the ride started…

    Who Needs Cuddles!

    Ethan doesn’t do cuddles! Well not ‘normal’ cuddles anyway but he is a very affectionate little boy and I treasure all the moments we have. Why have I decided to blog about this today? Well to be honest it’s something that I have wanted to blog about for a while because I really struggled with at first when the realisation hit me that Ethan doesn’t give me massive bear hugs and it did hit me hard but its part of Ethan’s personality and that’s what makes him our special little boy. What brought these feelings to the surface again today is that I received a cuddle from a little girl…

    Ethan’s Latest Masterpiece

    This month Ethan has created two masterpiece’s. The first was created by Ethan during one of his observations in the hospital and we actually got to see him paint it.  Ethan hasn’t been interested in paint that much at home so we haven’t really tried in recent months but on this observation day they had a table set up with paper and paints ready to go. When Ethan was ready he approached the table and created this all by himself and got covered in paint in the process. Yesterday Ethan brought this home from nursery a drawing created with pens, different colour pens at that.  Both pieces of art now…

    We Don’t Do Duvets!

    Anyone that grew up watching Saturday morning TV in the late 1980’s and through the 1990’s may look at the title of this post with a smile as this was one of the catch phrases used by Trevor and Simon on Going Live and Live and Kicking.  This should also be Ethan’s catch phrase and I always have to smile while it pops into my head as Ethan kicks off his duvet cover. Ethan doesn’t like the duvet cover on him, he also hasn’t liked bibs for some time and he won’t let the coverall anywhere near him when he goes to have his hair cut in the hair dressers. …
