Guess who is eating with a spoon?!!
Last night at dinner ELyse was crying and crying and would not eat anything. We have been plopping things like cottage cheese onto the tray for her to hand feed herself because she will eat NOTHING from a spoon when we try to feed her. We gave her a spoon like we usually do to play with and she starting taking bites if we put the food on the spoon for her! Then just now at lunch she ate applesauce off a spoon out of one of those little individual cups! I ate half of it and she ate about half of what was left. This may open a whole new realm of foods. Like maybe she will eat oatmeal and yogurt again :) YAY. Oh, and she is totally fine now off the miralax.

thanks, ladies :) Coy's mom, she isn't very successful yet of course, but I think it is pretty early since her adjusted age is just barely 12 mos! And she started walking at 12 mos (adjusted 10) so she amazes us! my preemie princess was behind for about 12 mos and then suddenly made leaps and bounds!

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
I am gonna try this with Nate. How exciting!! I was trying to avoid the mess, but I know it's time to let him try. I need to just let him be messy sometimes, lol.
