Little Gnome’s Great Achievement

Well yesterday was a day of a massive achievement for Gnome which I wanted to share with you.

Gnome has neurological problems even though he is just a year old, he is still be diagnosed exactly what is wrong but we will get there eventually. With all of his problems, he needs intensive physiotherapy where I have to watch as he is held to the ground on his belly to help strengthen his muscles as he has very low muscle tone. How he is learning to roll over as he can’t do itself.

Also he is unable to talk but day after day I keep trying to get him to say dadda, mama and baba and when we go out we say bye bye and do all the actions. Well you should have seen my face when Gnome said hiya dadda and did the action as well just as his dad rang. We sat there saying did he just say that. It was such a magical moment and one I will never forget.

So even when it seems you are not getting anywhere never give up you might be making a difference.
