Drinking Juice - Small Steps Amazing Achievements

Ethan has very restricted food choices, it makes dinner times a nightmare. Sometimes we have good weeks, sometimes we have bad. It can be a very frustrating adventure! 

We also have the same issue with what Ethan drinks. He would only drink water and milk from his beaker. He dropped his milk drinking a while ago, so this just left us with water. Not that this is an unhealthy option but I would love to be able to offer him different choices. It would also mean we could work on his communication skills at the same time by giving him choices. 

As always Ethan likes to prove us wrong. Since he has been drinking from a cup I have noticed that in Ethan's nursery book they had been writing that he has had orange or apple juice in a cup. So I questioned it and they confirmed that he had been trying the different drinks. 

This meant that we started to try him with some different drinks at home. He has tried orange, blackcurrant and lemonade. He does pull some funny faces at the new tastes but it is a fantastic step in expanding his tastes. 

A very small step, but one that has come from Ethan breaking the bond with his beaker and learning to drink from a cup.

Happy Anniversary, Six Years Today

Today is our six year anniversary. This is the first time in six years that we actually have the day off together thanks to Darren's paternity leave. We already went out for a child free lunch together on Monday but we haven't made any plans for today.

At 7.30pm we will light our unity candle to mark the day. Our ceremony started at 2.30pm Florida time so we light it at the correct time in England as Florida is five hours behind.

We will also try to watch our wedding video with Ethan, something we have shared with him for the past few years. This will probably end with me in tears, at least this year I can blame the hormones!

This year is obviously a very different year for us, as this year we mark our wedding anniversary as a family of four. Our little family is complete.

I love looking back at our wedding day, I enjoyed every minute of being a Disney Bride. It really was a day to remember.

I really don't know what the next few years will bring for our family but I really hope in four years time we will be celebrating our tenth anniversary where we were married, Walt Disney World!
