Child Health Nurse Appointment:

Doctors Appointment:
No need for a doctors appointment this month :).

Paediatrician Appointment:
 We have an appointment this week, but I did have to get Jydan to have some blood tests through his paed this month, SO horrible!

Dietitian Appointment:
It went really, really well.. it looks like Jydan is being discharged!! 

Speech Therapy Appointment:
Jydan is back on the waiting list for a speechie as they are low on staff.

Occupational Therapy Appointment:
Jydan had an OT appointment, and we worked on more sensory issues. We are waiting on a result from the OT about some sensory stuff. 
Phyio Therapy: 

We won't have another physio appointment until around December. 

Home Physio: 

Jydan wearing boots is helping his foot SO well. So much improvement.


Jydan's imagination is really really amazing, I get so surprised with how it is. He loves to have pretend picnics, and will get a plate of his pretend food and want to share with everyone. It's the sweetest and most beautiful thing to watch! Love that my little man is learning how to do all these wonderful things.


A few months ago, we tried to toilet train Jydan, but after a batch of bad gastro everything regressed, and then we were moving, so I wasn't too worried by it. But about a week ago Jydan decided that he is going to use the toilet and jocks, and that's it. I will add a Journey to the toilet post soon! He's growing up so quick.


With all this amazing growing he has started wearing some size one's (12-18months)!! Most are too big still, but 0's (6-12months) are getting too small! He's in that awkward in between size stage.. but yey for growing!!

Jydan hasn't been sleeping all that good at the moment, but hey! That's life! We also lost his second blanky that he likes to go to sleep with, so to be fair, it must be really hard for him. But even before this he wasn't sleeping. And only in my arms for his day nap.


Jydan is at the age at the moment where he is really responding to kiddies his age (although he seems to love older kids more), he tries to say hello, hi-five's them, gives them cuddles, rubs them gently on their back, and looks right into their eyes. It's absolutely adorable watching him build these friendships!!

Aww, sounds like he's doing so beautifully!! I hope he starts sleeping better soon. How come he needs a speech therapist? He is literally the most advanced with speaking of any child I've ever known!
