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
