Not much to report, but I will say that I am still frustrated with Regional Center and California Children's Services because I have yet to hear back from them.  It has been well over a month and every time I call they tell me that his chart is still be reviewed.  It is hard for me to not get upset because it is not like he is a new case he is just a transfer.  Sadly all I can do is wait patiently.  I hate for him to be out of therapy for so long.  I work with him every day on his sitting, standing, and crawling, etc...  He is doing great with eating table food.  He now completely turns away from all pureed baby food.  I still have not tried hard/crunchy food yet because I still don't think that he is chewing all the time.  I notice that he still will mash the food with his tongue and do more of a sucking pattern about half of the time.  I am still so proud of this accomplishment with eating, I honestly wasn't sure if it was ever going to be a possibility.  He still will not reach out and grab the food off his tray, but if food is falling out of his mouth he will reach up and push it back in with the back of his hand.  For me this seems like a step in the right direction.  He will hold onto his cup if I put his hands on it first and help him move the cup to his mouth, he will do the same with a spoon.  Practice makes perfect right? 

Here are just some cute pictures to end this post.

Dylan with his new bath seat.  He really liked it and had a lot of fun splashing around with Hailey.

  1. Ryley still pushes food back into his mouth with the back of his hand!! Dylan sounds like he is doing so well with his eating! I hope you can get therapies started again soon, though it sounds like you are doing lots of things anyway!
