I’ve never had so much fun watching another person eat as I did last night. Elijah had his first taste of green beans and it was so neat to watch him experience a new taste. He did a great job eating and took way more than we expected. Not only did he eat it, but I think he would have taken even more if I had made more.

I’m sure all parents get excited about feeding their child solids for the first time, but Andy and I have even more to be grateful for. We are so thankful that Elijah can eat, as with brain injury it is very common that a child cannot suck or swallow. Our little guy is having no problem eating and swallowing his food. That is such a blessing! During your next meal, take a moment and think about how wonderful your food tastes…it’s such a blessing to be able to eat and it’s something most of us (myself included) take for granted!

Well, I suppose I should be getting some things done to get ready for our appointments this afternoon. Just thought I’d take a moment to tell you about our little green bean eater. :)
