I've been working with Elise on doing hand over hand with her spoon each morning. Every time she puts a bite in her mouth she immediately releases the spoon until she is ready for her next bite. I am currently working with our case worker to buy a curved spoon, a velcro utensil holder, and a suction bowl to help assist in her eating with utensils independently.
I walked away from Elise this morning then turned back to look at her and she picked up the spoon on her own and brought it to her mouth! So exciting!!! Of course I had to grab my camera and get a picture of this momentous day!
I love these moments because they give me a glimmer of hope and that hope keeps me going.
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
