Finn, that is. Well, Finn and Lilah. And the others probably close behind. Symptoms: runny nose and eyes, listlessness, croupy-sounding cough, and slight fever. I'm so sick of the sicknesses! I'm fully expecting an ear infection to come into play too. How's that for optimism?
In other (non-)news, feeding solids continues to be a major struggle. I've realized that consistency is key, so I've been going through the routine every day: put him in his high chair, strap on his bib, sprinkle some Cheerios or rice puffs on the tray for him to play with (fine motor skills, right?), and try to interest him in the puree du jour. There's never any interest and it always ends up with me literally forcing the spoon between his clamped gums. Sometimes he swallows some (I'm guessing not intentionally), most of the time he gags and/or spits it out. So frustrating. And now with him not feeling well, I'm thinking that force-feeding is probably not the best tactic.
He had PT yesterday for the first time in three weeks (Eun has been on vacation) and I told her about our struggles with food and how I was informed that I can't get a consult with an OT. She said that next week when she comes she'll observe and see if she can offer any pointers. I'm also going to look into this Z-vibe that Cheryl talked about on her blog.
So, we're just plugging along.
