...our meal times are slowly becoming less stressful and I feel like something has changed in the fact that Colin is more interested in eating since he asks to eat when I think he is hungry and he asks for specific things as well. We don't need to use the TV anymore AND meal times are becoming more and more enjoyable again.
The first video is from lunch today when Colin was trying pretty hard to feed himself his pudding. There are still things he refuses to feed himself, but since he was really motivated by the pudding, he was interested in feeding himself. (don't mind the video being on it's side...it was started in one direction and then got flipped)
The second video happened after Colin ate his whole dinner. He has really shown an interest in pizza lately and he was happily eating some of mine.
I am loving this progress!
