Randy ate the top of a whole Bob Evans biscuit!!!!!  Do you think he can get a commercial spot?  The line can read, "Biscuits so good, even toddlers with feeding issues will eat them!"  LOL.  I know this may not seem like much to you, but to me it is HUGE.  He would not eat the inside, but I will take what I can get.

All of this was after two weeks of misery about his eating.  I did not even blog about it because I feel like I was beating a dead horse and boring my 18 followers.  But I could not help but write about this accomplishment.

I can see other improvements too.  He is willing to pick up unfamiliar foods.  He will lick them too.  Sometimes he puts them to his lips.  Most of the time he will hand the food back to me, but there was a time when he wouldn't even touch unfamiliar foods.

His feeding therapist was able to get him to eat 3/4 of one of these cereal bars.  So I, the eager and excited mom, went out and bought two boxes.  He has eaten ZERO cereal bars for me.  I wish I had her skills.  She was able to put it in the back of his mouth so quickly that he had no choice but to chew.

Nonetheless, I am happy with the progress.


  1. Yay!!! I am SO happy for you! I JUST said to a friend today..."I just can't wait for my baby to eat "real" food." Parents who are/have been through this...get it.
    Yay Randy! :0)

  2. Great news about the biscuit. And if I had a dollar (heck, a dime) for every time I went out and stocked up on foods that Hallie tried but then refused to ever eat again, I'd be able to subsidize or perhaps even cover all of those feeding therapy co-pays we've had over the past three years.
