Biter Biscuits

I promise that I will take a picture of this when I get a chance but I wanted to post another major milestone for Nathan. Last week when Jake and I went to Walmart, Jake suggested buying some biter biscuits for Nathan to try. I was a little apprehensive since the biscuits are so big and Nathan's mouth is so tiny! Jake convinced me though that we still needed to give it a shot. On Sunday we gave one to Nathan to try. He took it in his hand and played with it. Finally, Jake took it and pretended to put it in his mouth. He then gave it back to Nathan to try. Nathan took it back and after a couple of minutes actually brought it to his mouth! He really liked the taste of it and kept gnawing on it. He didn't actually bite any of it or really swallow, but he at least got the idea of bringing food to his own mouth by himself. We are making baby steps in this department, but we are progressing none the less. I can't wait to show Mary on Friday!

That's how Vaeh began, & then within a couple of months she was eating everything in site!
To answer your question about the G-tube, Vaeh didn't crawl until AFTER she walked! We always had a onsie on her to help protect the site, but she always scooted on her but. So I really don't have any advice other than try the onsie & maybe put a piece of tape over it to help hold it in place?! Hope this helps!
