It's been ages since I've found time to post on here but for those who were following Ben's story, here's a little update.
it doesn't seem that long along that we were bringing home our tiny little man. Ben is coming up to 9 and a half months old now (6 and a half months corrected) over the past 9 months we've been amazed at his progress, we have a few ups and downs at the beginning with reflux and feeding problems but he's now thriving, and has reached 17lbs. At the moment he has learnt to sit unaided, stand against furniture, clap, and is an incredibly happy baby who sleeps like a dream. He is still under consultant care and will continue to go for checkups every few months until the age of 2. There have been a few concerns regarding his left side as he wasn't able to use his left arm and leg aswell as his right however it seems to be evening out now. The last few months he has been seeing a physiotherapist who is assessing his development and wants to continue to see him every 6weeks until he is able to walk but at the moment its all looking positive, and we feel so incredibly lucky that he is doing so well. here's a few of my favourite photos over the lat 9 months
