Yesterday, our beautiful Enfys celebrated her third birthday. She has had one heck of a journey to get where she-is today and I am So proud of everything that she is.
This time last year we were beginning to feel like she would never walk. She had recently been given a little freedom with the use of a walking frame.
I still remember the day Enfys started walking.
I wasn’t even looking at her until I saw that she hadn’t stood up from a crawling position. It was the 9th September. She was 25 months old. She surpassed all our expectations when she started walking.
There are things that haven’t changed for the better over the last 12 months. Her communication Skills are one. Last year she was saying “mam”. This year she doesn’t say a single word however she is more vocal than she was. In fact, Enfys’ favourite pastime is humming the tune of Twinkle Twinkle little star. Its cute to be honest.
Over the last 12 months her personality has really started to Shine through. She’s mischievous] Loving and funny. Her bond with her Siblings is second to none. She shares with Anwen and loves to clutch her. She annoys Macsen by running away with his toys. She will happily sit and brush Seren’s hair, but she looks to Garreth for rough play.
Health wise we have had a fantastic year. We had one ride in an ambulance last November When She had what seemed to be a febrile convulsion when she had a chest infection. Fair play, she was poorly with it.
In a few weeks time Enfys will be starting the next big adventure. Nursery. I’m still not 100% certain whether she will have 1 to 1 support for the start date but I’m hopeful that the LEA will pull their socks up.
Well, the last three years have been an adventure with our Rainbow, I’m pretty certain the next year will be too.
