    January Child Assessment Appointments

    We have finally had Ethan’s January appointments confirmed in writing. We have to go to the child development centre every Wednesday in January and we have a meeting to discuss their findings in February.  I must admit I have known about these dates for a few weeks but I was quite unprepared for how upset this information made me feel. It was as if I prefer this living in the land of unknown that we live in at the moment but the land of unknown is not a good place for Ethan as we can only move forward and get him any help he needs with a diagnosis.   The beginning of…

    Babbling

    I’m keeping everything crossed as I write this post as I’m loving the progress that Ethan has made and I pray that it doesn’t stop as Ethan has babbled before but gone quiet again so…   …Its official Ethan has babbled every day for the past three months!    Its so lovely to hear as our house has gone from being very quiet to being filled with noise and as time passes it is getting louder and louder as Ethan has now added screaming to the noise he makes.    What is also nice it that Ethan babbles at us as if he is having a conversation with us, he…

    Breakfast With Santa at Colchester Zoo 2012 – Continued

    Included in the price of breakfast with Santa you get admission into the zoo for the day, we knew we didn’t want to spend the whole day at the zoo due to Ethan not being 100% so we just decided to take him to see the sea lions which is his favourite animal at the zoo. We put this down to being a water based animal as these are the only ones that grab his attention.   On route we stopped at the penguins, another water based animal that was a hit. Ethan did lots of babbling whilst watching the penguins and he worked out that his voice was echoing so he did…

    Christmas 2012 – Nursery Gifts From Ethan

    Last week Ethan came home from nursery with gifts for us, I love this about nursery as it means I get to put things up on the wall and to me it makes our house more of a home! Ethan had made a snow-globe which contained a picture of him.    There was also a reindeer bag that contained the following…      A 2013 calendar that had his hand and foot prints on it.   A Christmas card made using his hand prints…     …and a pine cone decoration that now has a place on the Christmas tree.     I know that Ethan would have had help to make these…

    Breakfast With Santa at Colchester Zoo 2012

    We had booked to have breakfast with Santa for Saturday the 1st of December and we were going to have a full day at the zoo but because of Ethan being ill we had to rearrange the date. The event staff at Colchester Zoo were really helpful, unfortunately all the dates were fully booked but thankfully they had a space left for one of their pre-school mornings and it turned out that this was probably the better option for Ethan. Ethan obviously wasn’t aware of what we had booked for him but I was really excited about doing this as I couldn’t sleep the night before! It was an early start and we arrived at…
