What do those three foods have in common? They were the real “first foods” I offered to Madison yesterday. She has the skill now to grasp them in her fist! She choked a little on the sausage. She enjoyed the apple and cucumber though.
Today we are having chicken and bakes potato…yep, going to give her some of that. She isn’t really eating this stuff so much as tasting it and feeling it. But that’s okay, I’m still her sole source of nutrition. And when she’s ready to eat more real food, she will.
Updated as of Sunday evening: the chicken was a huge success, by far her favorite. She was getting so upset when she dropped it. She did actually eat some too, at least on one chunk she ate all that protruded from her fist. I was a bit nervous, but tonight’s excitement makes me think I can really do this. Huge confidence boost! Yay Madison!!
