Boys Will Be Boys

Crew has always been a little sketchy with his willingness to sit upright for any length of time. Tanner is the very best PT tool that I have available. Crew sat for 45 minutes (about 42 minutes longer than his average sit-time) watching Tanner play with his car ramp. Boys and their vehicles! Whatever works!

In other Crew updates, he will now eat a fruit puff without choking, gagging, or spitting it out! For those unfamiliar with "fruit puffs", they are roughly the size and consistency of a Cheerio. First, I break it into three tinier pieces. Then, I slip one into his mouth, tucking it to the side so that it has time to get mushy before it reaches the back of his throat. Putting it straight into his mouth is a recipe for choking. He occasionally makes chomping motions with his jaw, which is very exciting. He ate probably 6 fruit puffs this morning, which means he conquered the puff 18 times before getting worn out.

We have so many things to be excited about this Christmas!

Oh my gosh. That is hilarious. How does he already KNOW he's supposed to like boy stuff?
