Jeremiah - 5 years 1 month (2)

Today we were back at the hospital again, this time for Jeremiah.  His height and weight were bang on the 25th centile, exactly the same as last time.  We waited for over an hour to see the consultant.  She said that he has improved loads over the last year and she doesn't think he is on the autism spectrum after all.

Could it be that with all our genetic imperfections Simon and I have managed to produce a neurotypical healthy child?  We have made four children together but still, with our history I never thought we'd have one with no issues at all!

So the consultant has discharged him and we went off to tesco for the traditional being good at the hospital treat.

No appointments until october now, although in the first week in october we will have 3 in one week.  Just normal stuff for now.  Jeremiah and Isaac are going to stay with Simon's mum and dad for a couple of days which means lots of mummy and Malachi time and lots of taking photos.
