We're Being Referred

Rupert had his 3rd 2 year check up today and finally because he's now over 2.5 yrs old he can be referred on to the paediatricians.
We also should be getting some Early Help too.

Our health visitor did the normal two year check up test and on some of it he has improved since last time, but on things like his personal awareness he was in the black.
She also did another test, which is pretty similar to the two year check but a little bit more in detail and more about how he copes with things and his behaviour.

At the end of the questions she marked up all the answers and added them up, anything up to 85 is considered normal and no further help required.
Rupert's score was 260.

Which yes is alarming but also great as its more evidence that we need some help with him and hopefully if needed a diagnoses of autism.

It's also great to know it just isn't me over thinking things, that there is something array with Ru and finally it's being noticed by others.

The health visitor said that the Early Help is like a parenting course but it will be more tailored to Rupert and will help me parent him to his needs.
Rather than how I've been parenting the others, as that just doesn't work for him.

He's also on the waiting list for Speech and Language therapy.
It's all starting to look very positive for my little bear.

Glowing Musical Thomas Review and Giveaway

With Christmas just around the corner....yes I know I said the C word.
I thought I'd share with you this very cute musical Thomas the Tank.

'The iconic Thomas theme tune plays when you give Thomas' blue dome a squeeze.
As the music plays his cheeks softly glow in different colours, adding some magic into everyone's favourite engine. Thomas' iconic sounds also play with a squeeze of his black funnel.
Glowing Musical Thomas is made with super soft fabric and is the perfect cuddly companion for little ones.'

Rupert loves his Light up Thomas and has been having great fun sliding him up and down the coffee table and taking him on daily adventures.

Thomas is super soft and he often finds his way to Ru's bed come bedtime.
No matter how many time Ru plays the Thomas theme tune his face always lights up with Joy when he presses the button.

Thomas's smiley face even makes me smile!

This would make an excellent gift this Christmas.

Fancy winning one?

You know when you look at your child and just wish that they would just stay that way forever!?

Ru may be hard to handle sometimes but I don't ever want him to change!
We found a new park this morning and he loved exploring all the different climbing frames.

Once we move I'm hoping I can get on with getting him re referred for speech and language therapy and then if need be getting him assessed for ASD.

Pumkin Baby

Rupert spotted a mini pumpkin whilst we were doing a quick shop in Morrison's the other day and automatically started calling it his baby!

In the past few days this pumpkin has sat at the dinner table with us,
slept on the floor next to his bed,
had bed time cuddles on the sofa with us.

After his full 10 hours at nursery yesterday Rupert was more pleased to see his 'baby' than me.
He gave it a zillion kisses and sat down to watch the iPad with it.

Oscar lovingly threw it on the floor and it started leaking juice so today I have to find a fake replacement or another pumpkin before Rupert realises that his baby is no more.

As for pumpkin baby no 1, I may turn into pumpkin chips!

#WickedWednesday || Why Can't I Have An Ice Lolly For Dinner

When Rupert doesn't get a lolly for dinner, this is what happens.

This full blown tantrum included, head banging, biting, punching, plenty of screaming.
It went on for at least half an hour.
All the boys finished their dinner and left the table and Ru was still in full swing.

He eventually stopped with the aid of a baby bell.

I guess a baby bell is slightly better than a lolly for dinner.

Isn't he gorgeous :|
