We were given a development diary some time ago by one of my many 'professionals'. It hasn't any ages associated with it and simply allows you to tick when Seth shows new physical, social, cognitive etc abilities. It's very large and detailed. As Seth always seems to be doing something new every couple of months I get all hopeful and open this diary with pen ready to tick off new boxes. & yet I'm lucky if I can find one thing that he's done. I think I've finally realised that this diary is for development which is delayed but should still follow the right route. Seth is developing but it's never going to be 'normal' so I think it's time to stop trying to tick boxes.
