Here are some pictures of Catherine in her modified highchair. The physical therapist came out yesterday and cut some foam to insert in her high chair to give her some extra support. Before the support she really couldn't play on her tray because she sat so low. She enjoyed playing in it several times today. She really loves that dog in the picture...the ears crinkle and she is addicted to anything that crinkles.
She's still not too keen on the whole eating bit. The speech therapist suggested we take a break from the cereal, she obviously doesn't like it and we don't want to push it too much. I've tried sweet potato and I get the same reaction. She doesn't mind too much a cheerio soaked in formula, but it still ends up outside her mouth. I think the concensus is that she just isn't ready for it. I'm ok with that except I wish we were moving closer to getting the g-tube out. I try to be thankful for it because with it I don't have to worry so much about her weight gain. She was weighed on Tuesday and she is now 15# 12 oz. The doctor was happy with her weight even though her gain seems to be slowing down. Enjoy the video!

What a cutie! She looks like she wants to push the whole doggy in!

FYI -- You probably don't have any control over the Google ads in your sidebar, but I'm seeing one for a Donor Sperm Bank. ;-)

thanks for the heads up, Barbara! I'll tell Jim about it. I'll tell him to remove it, that is ;-)

She is so beautiful!

Very cute.

Have you ever tried something like Farley's biscuits if she's into gumming things?
