I thought it was about time I posted a blog as it has been ages.
Life has been very very busy, I don’t know where the time goes, I feel I am always working against the clock! Little miss Eva had 7 hospital appointments in the month of March alone. In April and May, so far, she has had the odd one here and there which hasn’t been too bad. Eli has been his usual wee happy busy bee self!!
I cannot believe that our little prince Eli was 21 months old there. He amazes us everyday with the new words he comes out with, putting 3 or 4 words together and the wee things he does. We’ve been teaching him to count to 5 and it’s the cutest thing, he gets his wee fingers out and counts….although sometimes it can be ‘2, 4, 3…’!!! All we get these days is ‘Who’s that?’ or ‘What’s that?’. Love it. Football is his favourite thing. He’s definitely his father’s son, and also his two granda’s grandson. Poor granda’s never get peace to sit for 5 minutes! We have seen him just blossom in being big brother. He is so loving, gentle and concerned for Eva, it just melts our hearts. Every morning without fail, when I bring him downstairs, he’ll look at me, point upstairs and say ‘Eva?’, Eva has to get up too! He has to get the occasional nurse when he fancies it but then after a minute or two he’ll say ‘all done’ and that’s enough!! Today I plan to make play dough and start some crafty things with him. Love treasuring these memories.
Our little lady, Eva is approaching 8 months old. Again, we can’t believe that she has been here 8 months. In ways it has gone in a flash but in other ways, it seems like she’s been here far far longer with all that has happened in the past 8 months. We had a big victory to celebrate on 24th April….Eva rolled over from her tummy to her back. To some that might not sound like a big thing but for Eva, this was a big big achievement. We have learnt never to take anything for granted. Eva has now started holding toys with 2 hands, working with them, experiencing the textures and sounds of them and bringing them to her mouth. This is amazing to see our little girl do this. We have so so much thanks to give Eva’s physiotherapist and occupational therapist. They have been truly amazing . They have come faithfully every 3 weeks since Eva was born and give Eva a good 1 hour work out which involves a lot of play therapy and showing me what to concentrate on and do till they visit again. Eva’s hands have come on brilliantly. She can now open both hand a lot more and can grasp small things. She amazes us everyday and we are so thankful to God for our little blessing.
We are very excited about Paul going full out with his graphic & web design business, bright idea design!! Spread the word if you know anyone needing any web design or graphic work like logo, flyers, brouchures, new papers, etc etc done. (A wee plug but sure, I can get away with it!) Love seeing him use his creativity in ways he loves and be able to be involved in daily family life too. Love this man so much and love how he loves our children. Have heard it said ‘there’s nothing more attractive than a man who loves his children’ and as I see Paul with our two children, I fall more in love with him everyday. Excited for a few days away together, just me and him!
That’s all for now, hopefully it’ll not be as long till next blog!
