Living each day to the fullest, because we know first-hand just how fragile life can be.

Another first today. Feeding from a spoon! We mixed some applesauce with his Elecare feeding today, and it was....well, a first. That's about it. We wanted it to stay short & ending positive. I think he liked the taste of it, but wasn't sure quite what to do once he realized it was staying on his tongue. His gag reflex is pretty extreme....and he choked around the 4th bite, but hey, you gotta start somewhere, right? I think he did a great job!

Of course, he wanted to help....because he's a big boy now, and that's what big boys do.


  1. Keri, we had a hard time with Isabelle when we first starting feeding her, she had that gag reflex too. We were persistent and soon, you could see the joy in her face at each feeding, she got it down without a problem.

  2. Thanks so much :) I hope it gets better soon...who wouldn't like applesauce, right? I'll keep at it!
