We were thinking about Lio and how his upbringing will be different in some ways to other children. Living with a disability has it’s ups and downs, but how will Lio be affected by growing up around disability? His immune system seems to be very good which I am sure is due to lots of different people … More A Life With A Difference
Lio is now 8 months old and he is enjoying the weaning experience so much that we are now on three meals a day. He was previously waking for his morning bottle at around 8 am then going straight back to sleep for a couple of hours… so of course we would join him. But since Christmas, … More New Year, New Regime
It is Christmas eve tomorrow, which would have been Dad’s 67th Birthday and Lio turned 7 months old today.

In less than two weeks time our little baby boy will be here 🙂 We met the consultant who will be doing the c section, she was really friendly and seemed very chilled out, and she gave us a date of Monday 23rd May. I have to be at the hospital ready for action at … More 13 Days To Go!
I know I have been rubbish at updating this but it has been rather hectic. I have had a total of 10 injections in the space of a week, another funny turn, a cock up at the hospital, been told that they are probably going to deliver baby at 36 weeks, met the health visitor, … More Pins and needles
The past week has been a little less enjoyable than your average week. Firstly I had a glucose tolerance test (not sure why, other than the baby is measuring very slightly large and that I will probably have steroid injections at some point).
