This Kid...



Ate 1/2 of a breakfast sausage, along with a stage 3 oatmeal and fruit jar for breakfast;

Ate 3/4 of a cut up hotdog for lunch that she fed to herself, using a fork;

Stuck her hand right into cake frosting;

Didn't throw up once today.

And the parents rejoiced.

[I know she's had these little leaps before and they haven't stuck, but it is so exciting for us, regardless. We do think one of these days (maybe today!) it will start to stick and the more days she is willing to attempt it, the better. You know the old saying, "Practice makes for reduced oral sensitivities." Wait, maybe that isn't the old saying, but it does have a nice ring to it, doesn't it?]

Edited to add:

This morning she ate a yogurt (as per her usual) with an entire crustless piece of wheat bread cut into squares.

For lunch she ate an entire cut up turkey dog, plus roughly 3.5 ounces of REAL chopped up green beans (as in, NOT PUREED) with ketchup.

Holy freaking crap. This is blowing my mind.

That's great! Bring on the hot dogs!

I can't even get Katie to eat 3/4 of a cut up hot dog with a fork . . . by herself these days! I know, not the same but still -

That is great news.

Becca said...

Such great news!

And after his grilled cheese bonanza of Thursday, Charlie one ate two tablespoons of applesauce for dinner tonight (because I was trying to make him eat the pieces of chicken and greenbeans already on his tray, sigh).

Hurray! Ben has made a couple positive steps this week too but I am almost afraid to post them because usually he does things once or twice and then stops with rhyme or reason.

So "Practice makes for reduced oral sensitivities." makes perfect sense around our house. :)

Kristin said...

Yeah, I think you're right about how the ol' saying goes....LOL.

Kyla, that is so exciting!!! I can't believe it, even! I can't even say that much for around here today.
