Thosevibes, the FB group is pretty welcoming. I think a lot were just overly concerned for you .
Aiden had his first proper playdate today with our neighbors gorgeous niece, I really need to find a mum and baby group within walking distance and get over my social awkwardness. He loved staring at the little sweetheart, I think he's in love LOL
Aiden pulled at his belly button a two weeks ago so much that he made it bleed, it wasn't until then that we discovered he had a granuloma (felt like the worst for not noticing it sooner but his ped didn't catch it at his 2 week apt and said if his belly button was still weeping at his 2 month apt she'd cauterize it) anyway new ped (his is off on medical leave now) took care of it the next working day and cauterized it. no more weeping and the granuloma fell off and he has the cutest little belly button now. We were finally able to give him a bath so we pulled out the blooming bath he was gifted, kiddo loved it! my little poser!
yeah going way too fast!! Logan is 12 weeks now, he'll be getting his 2nd lot of jabs on wednesday and he'll be 3 months on father's day!! Can't believe it!
And I was thinking the other day, once he gets through this next wonder week (ww19) he'll be so grown up! They'll all be rolling over and starting to sit up by themselves and before we know it they'll be on the move!!!
On other news from me, we got an appointment on thursday with a health visitor for a review about Lucas, as we think he may have some form of autism!
Not looking forward to it, though maybe it's nothing and he's just one of those kids with lots of quirks or he'll grow out of them or something! Some things are just really weird - I'll give you 1 quick example...... We were gonna give him a bath the other night and decided to bath him and Logan together.... and for some reason, really have NO idea why, he didn't want to sit down.... And he was covering his ears (he does that a lot when something is loud, even if it doesn't seem very loud to me!), so at first we thought maybe it was cause Logan was in the bath with him.... but then when we gave him a bath on his own again the next time, the same thing happened! It was really odd!! There are other things that make us think he might be autistic, and my mum works with autistic kids so she knows a lot about it and agreed that he has some 'signals'.... We shall see I guess!!
(I typed all this last night, but then the battery on my laptop ran out and I was just about to go to sleep so I was like: yeah, I'll do it in the morning!)
It can be... they can be more sensitive to noise (or other things), but that's not the only sign he's got, he doesn't like change - to the point where he SCREAMED and it took 2 of us to get him in his new coat when we got him one in the winter....He always hides in the same spot when he plays hide and seek, he doesn't understand the question 'why?' (like why did you do that? he just looks at you), he doesn't tend to look you in the eyes when you try to tell him something or explain something. He likes repetitive things, likes spinning wheels on cars. He doesn't really play with other kids. Ofcourse they could be just normal quirks and he could just be shy, but you never know....
He even covered his ears when we went to a playgroup the other day and they were singing...he said it was loud! It really wasn't!
I have been so busy it has been easier to just catch up on fbook
Apologies, especially to you Donna, as I know you aren't on there xxx
Hope all goes well with HV Ella, I often worry about my 3yo too because he has strange tendencies but then speak to other mums with like children and tend to not worry so much. Better to find out though if you have concerns. My son is 4 next month, and is improving but used to be very OCD with hand washing and used to cover his ears a lot too. He can be so embarrassing too when he growls at people who try to engage him in conversation.
Aww big boy nearly 4

We just booked our Christmas trip home to the UK, 3 weeks over Christmas and New Years in Essex! We're so excited for hos first Christmas to be in my home place (it'll always be home no matter how much I get teased with my muddled british/american accent lol). We um in a zombie state applied for his birth certificate without filling in the back page so have to wait another 2-3 weeks for it to come in the mail then we'll apply for his passport We're so excited! Did I say we're excited? LOL
Aiden has become really giggly now, he loves to hear the differences between hubby's and my accent and he is such a daddy's giggly boy... all hubby has to do is say "Daddy loves Aiden" and he gets the cutest laugh
He's so cute Gemma!
We're thinking about going to Holland for xmas, to spend it with my family again this year! Lucas spent his first xmas in Holland - he learnt to walk there (at 10 months) Logan will be 9 months so maybe with him being the 2nd and his legs being so strong already he'll start walking there aswell!
