My Baby – Little Gnome

As you know Little Gnome has been having some problems and nearly everyone has put it down to him being a bit behind, well now we have the start of something to work with as we have found out a bit more about whats wrong with him.

Well let me explain as much as I know. He has some neurological problems and low muscle tone and has problems getting his body to do what he wants it to do. It takes him all his time to control his movements so something as simple as rolling over, is almost impossible for Little Gnome. As for his head well he is unable to control that, so this is something we have to work on.

It’s so upsetting when I hear that children around his age are crawling, walking you know all the things a normal 11 month are doing, but do you know what I will be just as happy if he manages to roll over on his own without any assistance that would make my year. I have been told that he will improve but not get better. So now its going to be a long haul and get him to do loads of exercises to try to improve his muscle tone.The first thing we have to work on is for him to roll over and try to gain control of his head, then just take it step by step

Who knows what the future holds he could surprise us all and be able to walk etc, if not and he has a walker or wheel chair we will pimp it up so much and he will be the coolest boy on the block.

At the end of the day he is still my gorgeous little boy regardless of his mobility problems

  2. A rough time for you chick, but LG is in the best of hands x

    As long as you’ve got the love and support of your little family and you’re armed with all the help and advice that the professionals can give you, I’m sure that Little Gnome will go from strength to strength and you know that you will deal with things as and when they happen. Take it 1 day at a time.

  4. Little Gnome is gorgeous.

    I do hope he suprises you and comes along in leaps and bounds.

    Its a little different for us as we have an explanation (boy child was born at 27 weeks weighing 1lb 7oz) but he is 19 months and not walking yet.

    You are not alone, and you just have to keep believing, smiling and carrying on – as you are only too good at doing 🙂

  5. He is adorable and you will be such a wonderful mother nad advocate for him. I am sure he will light up everyones life that he touches

  6. Little gnome is certainly gorgeous , and if he is anything like his mom he’s a little fighter and I’m sure with your love and support he’ll come on leaps and bounds.

  7. He’s Zac. He’s your boy.

    It’s horrid watching their peer group zoom off ahead isn’t it? I still look at the ‘experts’ and say ‘look he can’t do your checklist but he can do this… ‘

    It knocks you down and floors you out. It makes you heartbroken to be labelled a “failure” when months old. Cos’ we just want to give birth to happy kids. But Zac will amaze you and the Zac you love is tied in with whatever issues he has to face in future years. And you my dear will rant on here yet hold his hand firmly and give him the power to deal with it.

    Still poo pants though ain’t it?
