Pork Chops and Applesauce!!


Well, maybe not pork chops YET but Sean's teacher sent home a video of Sean self-feeding applesauce today! He fed himself three bowls! Woo hoo! Granted, applesauce isn't a big stretch in the texture aversion issues he has, but it is a new flavor and it is somethig that 1. other kids/people eat 2. is available in many resturants and 3. isn't manufactured by Gerber. :)

Go, Sean, that's my big boy! Go, Sean!

There's a couple parts where you can see him grimace it down, but overall he must of loved it. After his usual lunch today, he asked me to give him a slice of bread. He wanted Ella to hae one too, so I tore it in half for them to share. He took a few tiny nibbles out of his, chewing and swallowing them down. I am really starting to feel some hope that he is going to be able to eat regular foods by the time he starts kindergarten. One more year of preschool to keep working on this and I think he is going to do it!
