To get the cat....

To roll over....

And to be...

TV dinner

Dinner and a Rat

E LOVES Ratatouille. He's so predictable on what parts he finds funny. Yes, our son is holding a medical syringe while he eats. Oh, the funny things medically complex kids find comforting.

Tricking the toddler

We took E to Mayo on Monday for a follow-up GI appt. Everything went well, his GI doc was actually pleased with his weight gain (HOOORAY!!!!)

While we where there I mentioned that E was starting to like to taste things. Great! Well, except that the foods he likes- vanilla pudding, potato chips, french fries, frosted animal crackers....
All really high in fat, which means lots and lots of poo. Probably not good choices for a kid w/ 1/4 of his bowel. So we decided to try E on a new diet. Yummy, yummy Gerber foods.

Ohh, Mommy bought me a new cookie

What the heck is this thing....

Get that doctor on the phone, this is just unacceptable.

LOL, well I guess E isn't ok w/ rice crackers. He polietly objected by taking each cracker, crushing them and sweeping his hands back and forth on his tray until every piece was on the floor. I talked to his GI doc again after we got home and got the ok to just give him tastes of what he wants. As long as he doesn't loose weight, he can poop as much as his little gut desires. I don't mind, E's happy, we use cloth, it all washes :)

Happy Fathers Day

I know, E isn't a Daddy but he got a new gift. Check out our big boy!!!!!

This is a boy who puts NOTHING in his mouth. All of a sudden today, he decided tortilla chips where ok. So we ran out and purchased some "toddler" foods and finally a chair so he can join the family at meals. How awesome is E, his first high chair at two!

I'm trying to just enjoy today. Usually when E decides he can do something and the next day wants nothing to do with it. He did a bottle for all of 3 days before he decided to scream whenever he saw it. But here's to hoping he continues to enjoy self-feeding.

Look how happy he is :)

Go go power Eli

We have our demo power chair for a week. E's getting a be a pro going around the outside of the house. We live in a split and no way to get it into the house, but E doesn't mind. He much prefers the outback experience, going over the grass and rocks on the higher speed. That's my boy.

Thank you Uncle Sam

We where finally able to get E another bumbo seat. We had one Dec 06, but returned it the next day as E just didn't have the strength.

We where just at Target today and had our extra Uncle Sam money, so I thought heck why not give one another shot. And oh my gosh, does E love it!

We do have a few adaptive chairs, the only disadvantage is they are a lot bigger and have to be strapped on to another chair to make them work. The bumbo is so nice and easy. Just one piece and another plus is they now come with a tray. How cool does E look!

Best $50 investment EVER! I love this pic, E is just smiling while playing with his toys.

And gotta love husbands, he decided the toy wasn't entertaining enough so he turned him around.

And just a quick glimpse at our fun weekend. A swarm of little pink divas.
