Don’t give up. Don’t you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. You keep your chin up. It will be all right in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of... Jesus Christ, they come. -Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
When we went to Keith's first feeding specialist appointment, she said that Keith doesn't use his lips to eat. Since then I've been very focused on trying to touch Keith's lips a lot - kissing them, rubbing the, etc. Well, I think it's paying off. He isn't using them to eat with (yet) but he IS giving kisses! He tightens his lips and leans towards yours. PROGRESS!
We are working with Kristina on potty training. Yes, she was potty trained when we adopted her. Yes, it was dumb to put her back in diapers because I read somewhere that I should. Yes, it's frustrating to re-potty train a girl that I can't communicate with to tell her to tell me when she needs to go potty. *sigh* But, we found out that for her rewards she does like to eat DOTS.
