On the eating front, there have been some recent improvements as well. Her appetite is increasing and she’ll eat many foods without having them ground up. She loves all kinds of different pastas, Pringles, chocolate and all sorts of stuff that most kids do. Her chewing is coming along very well. There are still times when she won’t swallow things, but it’s bearable. Last night she put a whole piece of pepperoni in her mouth and tried to chew it up. She ended up spitting it out, but the fact that she tried is great progress.
Communication is still pretty limited. We’re trying to get her to sign what she wants when she asks “more”. But at least she’ll sign more.
My wife and I have a couple of big goals for our daughter coming up. We’re hoping she’ll be crawling by her second birthday in January and we’re hoping she’ll finally weigh twenty pounds. Right now she only at about 17.5 lbs. So there’s plenty of work to do, but it’s so nice to see some more progress.
