Dear ATDT,

I hope that this post on my D's business FB page is what you can experience too. This is my D talking about her 5 month old son my grandson. To give you an idea that they dont remember the fight of AN and all that fight entails these words tell me that they dont remember the AN fight "Being a Mum really is the hardest thing I have ever done, but it is also truly the most amazing thing I have ever done ♡"
I can still remember the drama chaos and tough time but I take great joy that she does not remember them. This is also joyus as she had polysystic ovaries and was told to harvest eggs. Did not harvest but fell pregnant naturally

What a month it has been! The development that Ollie has done is just four weeks is amazing. He can grab and play with toys, he giggles, chats and yells, stays on his tummy, is trying to roll from back to front and has started some solid food. This has by far been my favourite time since he was born. I finally feel like I have left the newborn haze and stepped back in to reality. If it is even possible my love for this cherub grows every day. Being a Mum really is the hardest thing I have ever done, but it is also truly the most amazing thing I have ever done ♡

Thanks for that great post, ED Dad. So wonderful to hear that she is doing so well and that she seems not to remember this hard fight.
Have a nice Christmas time with your loved ones, you so deserve that!
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Great post, thanks for sharing!
D became obsessed with exercise at age 9 and started eating 'healthy' at age 9.5. Restricting couple of months later. IP for 2 weeks at age 10. Slowly refed for months on Ensures alone, followed by swap over with food at a snails pace. WR after a year at age 11 in March 2017.
