31 for 21 Day 27: A Glimpse

It's no secret that we have spent the past 2.5 years with Colin facing feeding struggles of some sort. There are days when we feel like we will NEVER get to have Colin eating independently without any kind of struggle.

...and then there are days like the past few dinner times where we see a glimpse of the other end of the tunnel. Colin has been excited for his pancakes, has asked for it, has drank ALL of his pediasure in his cup, AND has been eating a whole banana along with the pancake. We put one piece at a time on his tray, but he will pick up all of the pieces himself and eat them. We are even seeing some slight chewing when we would never see that before. We are not seeing any changes with the spoon feeding, but as with anything, it's one little tiny baby step at a time.

In this video, he started acting out as soon as I had Chris video his eating. He was doing so well, but needed to put on a little extra show for the camera. At one point, you can very faintly hear him saying pancake. It sounds like you only hear the "ck" sound. It takes about 10 seconds or so for the video to focus...
