New Year … New Start

Happy New Year!

Okay, I’ve been slack! Motivation hit an all time low and I apologise for not updating for so long.

I hadn’t realised this blog had gained as many readers as it has in such a short space of time. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect when I first started this blog – so thank you for the many kind emails I have received from readers of the blog.

November saw our little miracles reaching their first birthday! It’s whizzed by and seems so long ago now that they were stuck in NICU fighting for their lives. It’s not until you look at the pictures to see how much they’ve changed in such a short space of time that you realise how far they’ve come. We had a quiet family affair and as you can imagine, the house was transformed into a Toys ‘R Us showroom!!!

December was a massive upheaval for us as we moved into our new home; no small task! But it’s great to finally be settled again having spent a few months waiting for the whole process to move along.

The kids have settled in nicely, and most importantly, we seem to have moved past the nightmare couple of months in October/November. Ella has had a total transformation. She has blossomed into bright and happy little bundle of joy! Now that her reflux and constipation issues are more under control, her personality is really coming out, and it’s such a relief to see her enjoying life now without all of the pain and discomfort she was clearly in toward the back end of last year. She smiles all the time (well not all the time!), she laughs, she listens more and more now that her hearing is recovering, and it’s like she has suddenly woken up to everything around her.

Her tone is much better, and the Occupational Therapy (OT), Physiotherapy (PT) and Conductive Learning (CL) she has received over the last few months have brought her on leaps and bounds. She shows such a drive in wanting to overcome her limitations that we’re astounded. I’ll do some retrospective updating in the next few posts to talk about it all in more depth.

So Happy New Year once again … onwards and upwards!
