One week in and he has already learnt the family default position when I appear with my camera.
This has caused much hilarity but has also brought us closer as a family - we have 'in jokes' and its ok to tease.
I am so proud of my son and daughter in law and can see the love shining through the exhaustion. Conversations about washing temperatures and baby cream versus oil are bringing myself and my son closer together - for a while there was just the two of us and we have a special bond but their card and flowers thanking me brought the biggest lump to my throat.
We took Thomas to see mum - she didn't know who Adam and Katie were and was totally panicked by Thomas.
I wonder how long it will be before she doesn't recognise any of us? Her deterioration is marked and worrying but there is nothing we can do - this is such a cruel disease.
We are being open and honest about Tommy's arm and it's amazing to see him using it and pushing with it - more research and reading to follow but we will learn together - he is to have a prosthesis at 3 months to help with his balance but his mum rightly wants him to learn how to manage without as well,.
More photo shoots to follow with our Oliver and more of the milestone cards but this tiny bundle has enhanced our lives already x
