A work in progress.

Yet another example of how Dylan is teaching us patience.

video

He has now started feeding himself puffs! And as you probably discovered from the video (yes, that is Dave in the background singing the "We did it" song from Dora, ahem...) we are quite proud of him!

Remember all of my nervous-nelly posts about Dylan and his struggles with feeding? Even very recently I posted about how I feared I might even be...ah...insane? Yes, well, as I should have known, this feeding piece would come. In time. In Dylan's time, I should have known that it would all come together. And it is coming together. As a matter of fact, he has also started learning the proper way to suck from his sippy cup! This is all a work in progress, but it is working! And it is progress!

I am so pleased. And so thankful for Dylan who continues being patient with us as we learn...as we learn how to sit back and enjoy the ride.

this reminds me of the things I thought my son-Mark (we call him Marky) would never do! He WILL do things in HIS own TIME! Like you said.....patience my unknown friend....patience! I never thought my son would walk, talk crawl, etc! But here it is 22yrs later, & boy have I LEARNED! He will TEACH you more than you know! Congratulations & STAY STRONG!

Wow, that is so great!!!! Sam sometimes put things in his mouth but not very often. We struggle with the sippie cup as well. But, it's good to know that things are coming together with Dylan, hopefully soon they will for Sam as well.
