Sophia was born healthy and happy 6 days early. She was a very content baby. From early on we noticed she didn't want to be held, she would enjoy spending hours rocking back and forth in her rocker.
Two weeks after her 1st birthday Sophia became extremely ill. She was taken into hospital where her head had swelled, the doctors thought she had a cyst and decided to drain her neck, this didn't work and Sophia ended up back in hospital the following day from being discharged. They operated on Sophia and removed a mass from her neck and drained the fluid to bring the infection down. Sophia spent 7 days in hospital while they treated the rest of the infection in her neck. We were called back to the hospital to discuss that the mass could be a tumour. Thankfully, after further tests, Sophia was given the all clear but we still don't know what the mass was. At the age of 2 Sophia started nursery and it was there that the nursery staff expressed concerns as Sophia was not able to play with other children, she would become very overwhelmed with different surroundings which would cause her to have a 'meltdown'.
Sophia was referred at the age of 2.5 years to a paediatric consultant who agreed that Sophia's behaviours and needs required further investigation. Sophia would eat the wallpaper, letters from the postman, she will regularly flood the bathroom.
Sophia broke her foot at the age of 3 by jumping from a height, I then broke my foot by stopping Sophia from running in front of an oncoming car. We have now had to move home and live with my mum as I needed extra help to keep an eye on Sophia during the nights as she was attempting to leave the house.
Sophia is the most loving and beautiful little girl, she is full of beans and always hyper. She loves any and all animals especially fish. She really is a pleasure to be around.
