As of Wednesday, this girl is speech therapy free! Hooray! After months of weekly visits, Little Dorrit's speech therapist made the determination that Little D. has the skill she needs to eat and that she can do it. Now, I wouldn't necessarily say that our girl is a fan of food - she's not actually - but she will eat. We still have to use her g-button to make sure she is eating enough calories to grow and gain weight but we will continue to try to give the majority of her food by mouth including baby food solids. Over the next few weeks, we are going to try out different foods with her and see how she does. Tonight, I fed her a few mashed up beans and I think she liked them. She sure has come a long way. Maybe someday, she will actually learn to enjoy eating.
