Eating update

Sometimes it takes a while to get you to eat.


Enjoying home made ice cream.

You’ll gum food with your two teeth, spit it out, and the put more food into your mouth.

Sometimes it takes a long time for you to swallow. Other times, you don’t swallow at all.

The easiest way to get you to eat would be for us to put the food on the floor, or the dog’s dish, because that food you quickly pick up and put in your mouth. But because it’s food, it usually comes back out.

Lint or paper or anything you manage to find on the floor usually stays in your mouth a long time and I have to jab my finger in to try to get out. But you keep your mouth clamped shut.

Sometimes we notice you crawling around playing and chewing on whatever non-food thing you put in your mouth. A pacifier stays in your mouth about five seconds, but you can chew on a leaf for a long time.

We just need to cover the floor with spinach leaves and we’ll finally get you fed.
