A Belated Happy New Year

We had a lovely quiet Christmas.  Nothing complicated, no arguments, lots of games. Nice! That's how Christmas should be.

I'm a little bit saddened however, because I haven't seen any progress with Joshua over the past couple of months.  Eg, no rolling, no sitting, no purposeful movements.  We are doing light treatment, which is nice as it simply consists of playing with toys, torches and shining lights in Josh's area.  Although that very much depends on his mood.  And to top it all off, my poor darling is teething.  Oh, the pain, it seems unbearable.  A little Calpol (infant paracetamol) works wonders.

Absolutely no progress on moving to bottles.  He is simply not interested.  My Mother-in-Law bought a new one from TK Maxx, like the Special Needs Feeder but less complicated, with a softer teat.  We've tried applying dinner/pudding to the teat.  If anybody reads this and has tried something we haven't please, please let me know.  Josh is seeing the Speach and Language Therapist today, hopefully they will have thought of something.

My Oliver started school yesterday, here he is in his new uniform.  So handsome.
So now we are back to normal.  School runs, after school clubs, madness!

The weekend is nearly here, we simply must have some fun to relieve the pressure of this first week.
