A Glimpse of the Future

I have to admit that we have been a little bit more laid back with the whole self-feeding thing. I think the decrease in stress has significantly helped Colin. While he has not made any big strides, we saw a glimpse of the future today, and it was very exciting!

After lunch (which Colin did really well with...minimal raspberries and helped feed mommy with his own spoon), we decided to give him so chocolate pudding. I put a small bit on his tray like I usually do with all food. I noticed that Colin started to dip a pointer finger in the pudding so I assisted his arm to his mouth. He did most of the work in getting his finger to his mouth, but I did help a little bit.
However, two more times later, he dipped and put the finger right into his mouth! We cheered and clapped and hoorayed many times so that Colin was so proud of himself!

I even got a little teary eyed because I was so proud of Colin's [small] but huge step in the right direction. One step at a time...chuga chuga chuga....
