Getting closer to Running!

Our little Munchkin has been "walking" with our help and seems to really want to try and take off on his own. So we thought that tonight we would give the walker a try. He needs a little extra support for learning to walk. So after dinner tonight we got out the walker we got in anticipation of this moment and took it outside (there is no way we can use this thing inside our house). Click here to see how he did. He went up and down our street several times all happy as can be. We're in so much trouble when he really learns how to walk. He already wants to take off in the walker. We are so proud of him and can't wait until he really gets the hang of it.

Yesterday was a rather neat day here at the cottage. In the morning our Munchkin was playing in the livingroom and as I was heading towards the kitchen to get something, looked in my direction and said, "Ma Ma" with this look of don't go. It came out more muh muh but you could tell that is what he meant.

It was awesome. He hasn't done it since but he'll do it again soon I am sure.

Fruity Chicken

As many of you know we've been dealing with our Munchkin not eating very much of anything for a very long time due to the drugs he was on. We were super happy that he started eating again after his surgery. He only likes to eat sweet things though which is a bit of a challenge for getting all the nutrition he needs. He's generally been flat out refusing to eat vegetables and meat. You might get one spoonful in but that's about it. Tonight though we managed to get him to eat a little bit of chicken. It was cleverly hidden in a whole lot of fruit puree, but he ate it and didn't turn up his nose at it. This was super happy making for us. We're hoping for a repeat performance tomorrow and that we can slowly increase the amount of chicken and he'll start to like it. And since I haven't shared a photo lately, here's one of him on his brand new couch. One of our neighbours very thoughtfully gave it to him as a welcome home from the hospital present. He loves it and so do we. He looks like such a grown up kid on that couch though.

Bubble Wrap and Food tossing

I haven't written in a little while, it was super crazy with Munchkin being up at Bloorview and there didn't seem to be enough hours in the day. Munchkin is home now, which is fantastic and is doing really really well. I'm sure I will fill in a few posts with details in the next few days as I have a bit more time. But tonight he was super funny. At dinner he was showing his preferences for food. He started doing this over the past few days. If he doesn't like or want the finger food I give him, he grabs it in his left hand flings his arm out and drops it on the floor. He really didn't like the veggie nuggets and they all were put on the floor as soon as they were handed to him they landed on the floor. What a funny little guy. Then after dinner I put a piece of bubble wrap from a package on the floor and had him stand on it. He had a ball stomping on the bubble wrap. The next time I do it with him I'll have to find the small bubbles since he's not quite heavy enough to pop the bubbles. He is such a cute little goof.
