One Small Step for Mankind... One Giant Step for Olivia!

The long awaited day has finally come!

We don't know if the angels finally got their hands in there to help Olivia, or if the new high chair that allows Olivia to keep her feet planted firmly flat on the "ground" as the Topics in Ds Nutrition book says will help them feeding themselves and eating, but Olivia can now feed herself "puffs" with her own hands! It really was painstaking work to get to this point, so it is like seeing one of the Seven Wonders of the World to watch her feed herself.

I will try to get some video up soon! Hope this works: video

With typical children, a milestone like this is taken for granted, but the blood, sweat and mostly tears that have gone into this make this cause for celebration! I think we will have a "puffs" and apple juice party! And everyone needs to feed themselves. Oh! And also, Olivia seems more interested in holding her cup by herself now that she is in this high chair. Oh! And Olivia is saying "cup" to tell us she wants to drink, rather than screaming at us to get the lead out!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!!!!!

Here's a toast (or a puff, rather) to Olivia on this new milestone. Congrats, kiddo!

YEAH! This took us some time too. To make it less frustrating we started with larger puffs and then moved to small ones. She still misses occasionally, but makes it most of the time.
