Wes ate 6 ounces of food this morning!

We were able to get Wesley to eat 6 ounces of food this morning and another 1.5 ounces of milk! YAY!! I was feeding him and he got a little tired of eating toward the end, but he kept on going. We go to feeding therapy this week, so I am excited to hear what she has to say. In my non-professional opinion, he has made great strides these last few weeks. He was only eating about 2.5 ounces of food and 1 ounce of milk, so he has more than doubled his oral intake. Wes is also working on chewing, but he won't chew foods like baby pasta meals. He is more interested in hard breadsticks, french fries, and cheetos. I can't blame him though because I would much rather eat that food too :)

We have also stepped up the potty training efforts. Except for naps and through the night, Wes is wearing his big boy "unnerwear." He had one accident as soon as we first put them on him, but he's done well since then.

The three of us at Waynesville's Sauerkraut Festival (Who knew a town could have such a festival? Personally, I do not like sauerkraut, but Damon loves it. They have sauerkraut pizza, sauerkrat cookies, sauerkraut balls, sauerkraut ice cream, sauerkraut doughnuts, sauerkraut sundaes (pork, mashed potatoes, sauerkraut), and more. I ate a corn dog (without kraut) and a funnel cake (also without kraut). And yes - you could smell the stink of sauerkraut everywhere!!)

We also went to a Homecoming parade, and Wes was able to see fire trucks up close. He was excited, then scared, then excited again. The sirens scared him because they kept them on the whole time.

YEAH YEAH YEAH! What great progress! And personally I think you are a saint to go to a kraut festival. You deserve a fancy candlelit dinner out somewhere!
