Last Friday, Colin had an appointment with Occupational Therapy about eating more baby food. He tolerates baby food, but has never been too excited about it. The good news is that he has the skills to do it. Bad news is due to the tube feedings, forced feedings to gain weight, serve reflux, and a gag reflex.. he is pretty guarded about his mouth and the things that go in it. She gave us some tips on getting him more used to things going in his mouth. So far seems to be working, last night he ate 3 oz of baby food without having to push him into it. He was opening his mouth ready for the food, hope this trend continues.
This weekend we were pretty low key – getting ready for our big trip. We took the kids to Bass Pro Shop… it’s an outdoors/fishing store that is really like an amusement park for Katherine. She was “driving” boats and 4 wheelers. “Camping” in the tents. We got to sample fudge, which she liked of course.
At home we had a dance party led by Katherine and Matt!
Colin is now cruising down the furniture, when he holds onto the stairs, he will walk from one end to the next, same with the couch. I don’t think it will be too long before he is walking.
Katherine is really enjoying Colin at this stage, she loves to play with him. She is on a retro cartoon kick at the moment. Though she still loves Dora and Diego, she is into Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, The Snorks, and Smurfs! Her vocabulary and thought process has really skyrocketed lately. She is such a little girl now and not a toddler anymore! She is one tough negotiator, I think she has a great future in sales!
