Year 2 Day 302: Start to Finish
Ryan got another experience with cod tonight, but this time I think he ingested more and he did loads better with gagging. I've noticed once he has had a food once or twice, he is much better at getting a productive cough if the food gets in a funny spot on his tongue or the roof of his mouth -- and cod can be pretty sticky.
I've also been doing a bit of sign with him to help him communicate needs. Lately when I sign 'finished' (which is almost like a twisting motion like you're shaking water off your hands from your chest) he holds his hands out to the sides if he is finished. Well, that...or he blows raspberries...
...WITH food still IN his mouth. Look at those cheeks puffed up!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
