Normal Life

I was back to work on Monday, and with plenty going on in the run up to the release of our product, and a big IBM customer show the week I was away, there was loads for me to catch up on and sort out. Hannah has got quite a lot of work in the form of preparing and giving PHSE assemblies at school, giving PHSE education sessions for the diploma to teachers and nurses and on Wednesday evening she did a lecture/presentation in Ventnor about her childhood with diabetes, which was, by all accounts, very emotional and well received.

Ella is scooting around the house of all fours, and is far more boisterous now she is more mobile. She is sleeping more, usually, and generally is fit for bed at 7pm, and 8pm bedtimes are a thing of the past. Her daytime sleeping is somewhat less regular, with occasional morning or afternoon naps not being taken, or on one day last week she slept for 5 hours in the day. Last night she was awake for an hour, initially screaming her head of in bed, which Calpol, her dummy nor Ashton and Parson’s powder wouldn’t abate. Eventually we brought her up to our bed, but she just wriggled around and slapped anything interesting. When put back in her bed she went straight back to sleep, no problem.

I finally put together a truck that Barbara bought Ella as a Christmas present yesterday. Once assembled we immediately put Ella behind it and she straightaway toddled across the living room from Hannah to me – so she has taken her first supported steps. Marvellous. Of course, they were not the most dainty but she loved it. We repeated the feat (pun) several times yesterday, but trying to show off to her Gan-gan this morning was not a success, as Ella was much more interested in something else on the floor.

    Hi there
    Nice to read that Ella is pottering around now and I am looking forward to seeing it for myself in May. It was great to spend some time with you all in Spain even if it was raining and I did not really get to see as much of Ella as I might have wished, but a whole five days all to myself with Ella and yourselves coming up.
    I also looked at your new product link. Is that the one you are working on?
