Happy Update

I’m really pleased to be posting that our trip to London to try the Anat Baniel Method was a success! We have seen immediate results and we have plenty of things to be getting on with so all-round happy!

I can’t tell you how it felt for us to be told our little one could be helped, had loads of potential, was sensitive, bright and clever. Of course we already know, feel and see this every day…but to hear it from people who could offer us all the chance progression was so warming. We worked on sitting, head control, reaching, rolling, weight bearing down the arms working towards side sitting and rising to propping up on the elbow.

Already we are seeing the small person using her right hand considerably more. Previously this was 1/5th – 1/4th of the time compared to the left, now it is easily 2/3rds – 3/4ths of the time compared to left. Her head control is stronger which is very apparent when she is in a back carry. Every day we are seeing more and more weight bearing down her arms and she is very much enjoying the process of learning to side sit. I just can’t believe how fast she is coming along now! So, lots to do now, and we are looking forward to going back as soon as finances allow.

So for now, I’ll leave you with a photo x

Learning to side sit



I had promised myself I would find time to blog a bit more often but here I am, a week since my last post…

The truth is I’ve been quite distracted, what with our upcoming trip and Embrace Art I’m not getting much switch off time. I’ve been doing a bit of crochet to help calm my mind a bit and it must be helping as I managed to crochet one wristwarmer in the space of two naps. Got to get my backside in gear and hook up the other one so I can get them sewn up in time for London.

Thats all from me for today, just letting you know I am still here albeit with scattered thoughts!

Me, that is!

Last week  I launched Embrace Art, my simple babywearing artwork venture, you can see it here on facebook. I also have set up a Folksy store although it’s currently empty as I’m inundated with custom work! I’ve got lots of plans to grow Embrace Art although I’m taking it slow as my small one is still quite demanding of my time.

All being well we will be going to try the Anat Baniel Method in less than a fortnight. I’m finding my anxiety levels are increasing and some repetitive behaviours creeping in but its under control.

Having to cut this one short as my little one is stirring from a very short lap-nap…I’ll be back sooooon!!
