Therapy Update!

Our Asher man has started therapy so he can learn how to eat big boy food!! For the two years he was in the orphanage, he was never given solid food. Ever.

He came to us totally on a (watered down) bottle. However, in just three months, he's come a loooong way! We are currently in therapy once a week, and he's started chewing and biting! (in fact, last Friday, he shredded his bandages on his hand with his teeth...didn't know whether to say, "yea!!" or "no, sir!")

He will willingly eat Gerber puffs, stage 3 baby foods, and a few other soft foods like pudding or ice cream. He's still on the bottle 4 times a day, but we're working on a sippy cup. We love his therapist and have seen such an improvement over the last 4 weeks since we began. It's going to be a long road, but we've gotten a wonderful start!  In therapy, he is encouraged to mimic our's a sample.....*

  2. If we lived closer, Silas and Asher could be therapy buddies :)! Keep up the good work Asher!

  3. That is so great! Love the pictures; love his face on the swing!

  4. Glad to know he's making progress. Thanks for sharing! Hope that boy can enjoy some good BBQ with Daddy one of these days. :-)
