Picky Picky

My name is Lily

And after seven and a half months of weekly feeding therapy I have mastered the honey bear!

This is kind of a big deal.

And I have all the skills I need for eating, except rotary chewing.  But that is a work in progress.  I can bite, chew, move food laterally with my tongue, and I know how to handle myself if I get a bite that is too big for me to manage.  I can avoid choking.

I can eat.

But only white food.

I like to taste everything.  But I will only eat a measurable quantity of white food.

I eat noodles, and apple slices, and bananas, and yogurt.  But only if it's vanilla yogurt.

And I drink white milk.  In a pinch I will accept chocolate pediasure.

End of edible list.

The inedible list includes strawberries, peaches, watermelon, really all nonwhite fruits, all vegetables, most crackers, and all meat.  And oddly enough I won't eat apple sauce.

Speaking of white things, I've really enjoyed watching my Mum's hair turn white as she worries herself in knots trying to feed me.

  1. This is a wonderful, needed, helpful, funny, and yes, dignified (you!) place to share even more of the QueenBean. I will add it to my blog roll daily reading. Don't know where all your energy comes from.
