Feeding Therapy + One Bored Mama = Fun Times!

Yes, you are right. I have no shame. I'm not embarrassed to show you all that. Not at all. And, just so you know, I don't always do this during Marissa's feeding therapy. Most times, I do participate. But there are sometimes Marissa does better without my participation. In those cases, I can leave the room, get things done, or like you saw above, go crazy with my Mac's photo booth!

Rissa Roo did great during today's session! Especially considering that we haven't worked on it for a week and a half because she was sick. She sat down for 25 minutes and tasted and took bites of all different kinds of food. Things like you see below:

Gummy worm, Ritz cracker, yougurt, apples, biter biscuit, beef stick, twizzler, and graham crackers!

Now here's a girl who is proud of herself for a job well done!

You are hilarious! My boys thought that this was hysterical! Now I want a Mac! Actually, I've been wanting one, but now I want one even more! :)

That picture of Marissa is adorable! Tell her good job with her taste testing! YAY!!!

Milo likes to eat alone too :0) I guess there is less pressure? He's "eating" potato chips right now, or rather licking them and putting them back in the bag...it's his own bag now!

Now that is one silly video!

Marrissa sounds like she's doing great job all by herself with the eating/tasting. That all looks like yummy stuff to experiment with!
