Eating bunches!


Ahh, this tastes good!

EMPTY! She at a whole jar of bananas!

Ever since the day we brought her home from the hospital, she has been trying so many things. We started with graham crackers softened in milk, & she's now progressed to cheese puffs & even noodles! She only occasionally gags when she gets something too far back on her tongue, but she's even learning how to maneuver things around so that she doesn't gag! I'm just so proud of my little girl! Just two months ago, I was afraid we were stuck with this button as a permanent part of Vaeh, but now the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter!
On another note, our little heart friend Elaina has stabilized somewhat & is starting once again to improve. They are planning to try to place a broviac line today so that they are able to monitor blood work & give meds. Please keep praying for this strong little girl & her family. She has been through so much & still has quite a road to travel until she's able to go home!
