Eating Progress

Most days, eating is a struggle for Noah {as well as for us}.  Let's be honest...Bubs just doesn't like it.  He finds little or no pleasure in how things taste and struggles with texture, volume, and an ever-present gag reflux.

During meal time, we encourage Noah to eat graham crackers {in fun shapes that he can tolerate} or yogurt {which he has easily mastered} before we give him his blended food through his g-tube.  Let me tell you...all meals involve bribes with the iPad or iPhone.   Seriously, where would we be without those?!?  Noah LOVES to play games and will typically do just about anything for some "technology time".  That's not to say, however, that there still isn't usually a struggle to eat.

On occasion, Noah happily eats his food...and dare I say enjoys it.  Other times, however, meals look like this...

I just keep repeating to myself, "One step at a time..."
