Yesterday, Paprika ate a whole banana. I know this may not seem newsworthy to most, but around here, it was a big deal!
If you've been reading this blog long, you know that Paprika saw a Pediatric OT for many months for feeding issues. We've travelled to the moon and back to try to get Paprika to expand her diet.
She ate a strawberry once (a year ago). And yesterday, she ate a WHOLE banana. It was awesome! She gagged on it at first, but was able to get it down, and then she said it was delicious.
I was so proud of her, I can't even express it appropriately. It is funny for me to say that I am proud of my daughter for eating a banana, but really...it's about trying new things. When you see your child succeed at something that you know is really hard for them, it is just such an awesome feeling. I don't think I'd be more proud if she won an Olympic Gold medal. Go Paprika, Go!
Now the trick is getting her to eat it a second time. Haha! ;-)
