chicken and noodles :)
Yes, Timothy is working on solid foods and apparently having a good time with it too. How much he actually takes in is questionable, but I do know that he does swallow and we are even swallowing with our mouth closed. (He would swallow with his mouth open before...you try it, it is not easy!)
We met with the pediatric surgeon/feeding team specialist earlier this week and he is pleased with how Timothy is gaining weight. At this point, we are just waiting for the muscle on the top of the stomach to get strong and for the spitting up to stop. Then we can wean him off of the feeding pump and to more regular feedings. For now, we are staying with the same plan with lots of practice eating, which is adding to the calorie intake too.
