Just when we thought that our plate was full in life, God dished us up some dessert!

I am so proud of STAS!!!!!!!!

This is so exciting. Stas was not able to chew anything when he first came. Everything had to be soft of liquidy enough to swallow without chewing. We have pureed every meal...adding water, applesauce or summer bunnernut squash soup. We have been practicing chewing (via learning from Speech Therapy) to teach him to strengthen his jaw and to chew. Look what happened this afternoon!!!! My superhero! He is so cute....now if we can get rid of the h. pylori we can kiss him again....I have it too. It stinks (no pun intended!). I have to get EVERYONE'S poop today. Wish me well. Jealous?? If you are coming home with a little one from EE, PLEASE have them checked right away for it and don't let it go without aggressive treatment....Enjoy the video! I am.


  1. Congratulations Stas! We went through the same transition with Nadia and now she even takes chewable vitamins! Next step is getting her to use the pincer grasp instead of grabbing all of her food with her whole hand. :( We'll get there, though..baby steps right?

    Thanks for sharing the video!

  2. Did you say you have to get EVERYONES?????

    Oh, my. You have a BIG family.

    I want to laugh, but we're probably next!

    Adorable video, he is SO DARN CUTE!

  3. EVERYONE'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm letting Dan do his own!
