Small Bites

We have more new foods this week! Joey ate a ham and cheese sandwich- with proper bites- for his OT this week, and he will also eat fresh peppers, sliced up! We are SO excited! Perhaps we have turned a corner with oral sensory issues? Could we be seeing real progress for healthy eating?

Joey's new "thing" is sharks. He saw some prehistoric ones at the museum, and then the prizes this week at OT have been sharks, and he's hooked. Add a new love of Finding Nemo, and bingo! Boy finds new obsession. With plenty of teeth.

On the other hand, we've also added a new biting issue- the boys have decided to bite each other when angry. Joey already bites his hands and clothes if he gets frustrated, but this biting other people thing- not good. We'll keep you posted.

Maybe they're pretending to be sharks...

Actually, I think it started with pretending to be dinosaurs- but its gotten beyond just a little rough. Ouch.

I sympathize with the biting issue [we still have that, especially with the little one]
As for the food! Good for you! [pity I can't write that in green ink!]
Cheers

Oh I am having such food envy! I know Nik will get there...one day.
I thought the same thing abfh did about the sharks and biting. Um, maybe you could introduce them to some nice, **toothless** creatures to obsess about? (wink!)

Yes- I now think wistfully of the days they were into snails...

I love food successes. One small bite for Joey, one huge achievement for you all. ;)

the days they were into snails LOL
Yay! on the food front, Joey! It occurred to me yesterday that with a full day schedule next year, Ezra will have to eat lunch at school. Fortunately, he is willing to try things that resemble a cheeseburger, so hot lunch will work , maybe more often than for his brother.

Ham and cheese sandwich is amazing. That's three foods mixed together at once!
