Open Mouth, Insert Food

Now that Averi is feeling a little better and we are keeping her drugged up on zofran, she is eating orally.  This is a big deal since she has been nauseous for so long and was on IV fluids up until the day she was discharged.

I decided to give her a spoon and a bowl today to see what she would do.  I was VERY impressed!

She refused to hold the spoon any other way but at least the food was making it to her mouth.  Maybe this whole self feeding thing is going to be easier than I thought.
