Well Ian said he would nickname Jude ‘Slug’ last week, a little unfair I think, but at the same time quite funny. Jude has started to enjoy spending a lot of time on his front on the carpet. He definitely wants to crawl and we think he is trying to dig a hole in our carpet with his legs feet and knees. His arms are going to take a bit of catching up, so at the moment he moves around in a circle (clockwise) occasionally pushing himself up and as he’s teething dribbles a lot! So whilst moving slowly on the ground leaves a trail behind him – hence the nickname ‘Slug’.
Jude started his new medication just over a week ago, and we are still at the stage of increasing this. I personally haven’t witnessed any of his full body jumps recently, I still see the occasional twitch. But that said, Jude seems so much happier within himself. Ian and I just wish he’d sleep – at night.
At the beginning of December, we are going to Brainwave for two days. Nathan and Joseph are so excited about our trip, mainly because they both get to go in the Hydra Therapy pool with him and that we are catching the train the Bridgewater.
This afternoon we are being lent a pushchair for a week, too see if Jude tolerates it. I am quite excited as we will finally be able to go out with him. Updates and probably pictures will be posted soon.
