I had a nice surprise today when I got the following email from Eliza's speech-feeding therapist about today's session. Eliza attended with Joyce her new nanny and BFF since I had to work (still waiting for the winning Lotto ticket). I don't think I have ever received such a nice report on a feeding therapy session:
Eliza had a great session with me today! She ate 2 goldfish and “crunched” on them with her molars- showing me the bites she took. She took a small bite of a grape, took the skin off of it, and ate the remaining piece. Then she took two licks of the applesauce with her finger. She didn’t particularly like the applesauce (not sure if she likes cinnamon?) but she was interested in it. Also, she took a bite of the cracker and then spit it out because it was too big of a bite. But most importantly, Eliza went through the entire session without ANY tantrums, climbing out of the chair, saying no, or swiping things off the table. It was a great session!! I’m really starting to see a huge difference in her demeanor and it can only mean positive things! I told Joyce that the session went really well and she was happy as well. It’s great that Joyce is on board with helping Eliza!!
