Tonight Tiddler gave me the most lovely cuddle.
Tiddler is 10.5 months old. She is physically delayed due to her Hypotonia (low muscle tone) in her upper body. She also wriggles and arches, out of frustration as much as anything else as her body won't work as she wants it to. Holding her in any position is hard work and she requires more support than a "normal" baby.
I was putting her to bed tonight, calming her down and she reached her arms up to my face and we cuddled.
Amazing amazing feeling. I am a lucky Mummy. We are getting there.
