What a fantastic weekend!

This weekend has been just fab. We've all been pretty relaxed and enjoyed spending time and playing with Seth. Because I know he's been working hard during the week the pressure is off to have to make sure that I tick all of the physio and cognitive excercises. Although of course everything we do is educational play in some way, it didn't feel like work. The new gym we joined at the beginning of the year allows children into the swimming pool for a few hours so Craig and I took Seth this afternoon. It was actually one of the reasons we joined. It was great for Craig because he hasn't had a chance to swim with Seth before and Seth really enjoyed it even though it was pretty busy and not as warm as he was used to at school. There's definitely a change in Seth. He wakes up more alert and chatty and he's looking around even more, especially behind him. He seems to now be aware that there is a 'behind him' and is curious about it. I can't wait to see what next week brings.

Saturday night we went to a friends 30th birthday party. It was fancy dress. Craig and I went as Chewbacca and Scooby doo. We hadn't planned this but as soon as we saw the costumes the decision was made!
