June 19th, 2010
Kinnick still has a LOT of tactile issues. There are very few dolls or stuffed toys that Kinnick will accept. She found Hayden's Woody and Buzz dolls last night. They're pretty old. They were Harrison's when he was little. Immediately, she liked them. I have no idea why, but she does. They are about as close to dolls as we're going to get. Dora is still banned from any bed or chair that Kinnick is in. We've had Dora for a year. Her other prize possession is her Butterfly (fly-fly). She doesn't sleep without fly-fly. Looks like the bed is going to get a little bit more crowded.
We're still working really hard with feeding. We've been trying real Bananas, Peaches (in syrup), and Pears (in syrup). We mash them up good with a fork and try to feed them to Kinnick and Carver. Somehow, Carver manages to get the entire bite to the tip of his tongue and then out of his mouth. Kinnick just gags until she throws up. With work, we can typically get most of the serving into Carver. Today, I mixed his mashed bananas in his pureed mangos. He didn't know what to think about it, but ate them up! They just need to get used to the new tastes and textures. Bananas are quite slimy when you mash them up.
