When the littlest bean came along, my gorgeous boy didn’t cope well. He was just a few months away from an autism diagnosis and her arrival threw his little world into chaos.
He wouldn’t go near her, thrust his hands over his ears and screamed when she cried (which was a lot) and wanted his daddy more and more, because I always had a baby.
This picture is testament to how far we have come. The unpredictability that she causes can be too much for him to bear sometimes, and he still really doesn’t like her crying – but I see love, every day.
She, on the other hand, has doted on him since the moment she became aware of his presence. She is already so protective and caring.
I can’t wait to watch their love and friendship grow.
