An answer to a prayer!!! January 27, 2011

Something happened to Alex on Tuesday. A switch flipped in his brain. He is 2 and a half years old, and in all of that time, he has never once eaten anything that wasn’t on a spoon. He has never taken a bite off of anything. He won’t eat anything that is solid, and since everything he eats is mushy he had no reason to chew. Well all of that changed 2 days ago…

Sometimes he’ll carry food around, but never eat it. He’s been putting things to his mouth lately though-french fries mostly. :o) Well two days ago he took a hamburger bun, put it to his mouth, and TOOK A BITE! Then he took another, and another, until he had eaten the whole thing. It was amazing. I sat here with tears in my eyes the entire time. I was so excited I had a hard time going to sleep! Since then he’s eaten a few pieces of bread, a cracker, a chip, pancakes, and a chicken nugget. I still can’t believe it. I was starting to think that he would never eat solid foods. What a huge breakthrough. This beautiful child is so amazing. God is so good!
