It has been a while. The boys are growing so fast. William is taller than average but still very slim. We went to the hospital for a development check and there's a possibility he might have asperges syndome as he is showing traces of it. He can count, unlock doors, stairgates, etc and he he very obsessive about his cars. he does all that, but he doesn't do stuff that boys his age are supposed to. He's slow with his speech too. But he is only 2 1/2 so he is too young to be diagnosed yet, but at least we know kind of what is going on and know how to go about it. He needs speech therapy and will need to be seen every six months until he is old enough to be diagnosed.
Benjamin is 8 months old and getting everywhere! He keeps annoying his brother, by playing with his cars and pinching his dinner off his plate. He is a little chubster and absolutely loves his grub! Being 8 months old, he is over 20lbs already and nearly in 9-12 months clothing. He has his brothers big blue eyes, which is nice. When i get the chance, i'll update on pictures.
Now an update on me. I have recently got a job but resigned today because i had a better job offer. As from Monday 16th i will be working as a care worker at the local nursing home and i can't wait. I won't need to go to college (which i was going to do this following September. I'll need to ring up and cancel.) as i will be learning for free and getting qualifications there. It's so exciting to be doing something i will enjoy. It is a full time job aswell which is great.
Bobby also has a job interview on Sunday and if he gets that, we'll need to think about childminders for the two boys as we'll be getting childcare for free, hopefully. My mum said she'd help out as much as possible when she finishes work, etc.
Me and Bobby have booked our wedding for January 9th 2010 and we've given in all the deposits. We just need to save, save and save now. So that's something else to look forward to which is great.
Benjamin had his christening on the 22nd February. It was a great turn out and the weather was pretty good too. He wasn't too impressed by being woken up with water being poured over his head but he didn't cry for long.
I hope everyone else is good and that i haven't bored you yet!
Oh and Becky (if you still come on here, if not i'll try and text you again!) i need your address so i can send the Bumbo off to you. Benjamin no longer needs it as he is constantly trying to climb out of it (well, he topples over and the bumbo goes with him as his legs are still stuck in it!). I know you're due soon so it'll come in handy for when Lucian (?) gets bigger. x
i remember william, especially his big blue eyes. was hoping to see pics, hope you can post some some time. congrats on the job and the upcoming wedding, and the christening too! your life sounds anything but boring right now (in a good way.)
i don't know that much about asperger's but i've heard of it. i hope all of that turns out okay and the therapy is successful. best of luck!
