Just wanted to share the good news that this happened this morning:
She fed herself every bite!
For those of you who read my last post, you will remember that Megan has never fed herself. Yep, a girl who is 3 years + 9 months old…is still spoon fed.
I am hopeful that what happened this morning will continue. It was clumsy going to start, but not as slow a process as I had imagined that it would be. There were a couple factors that really motivated Megan to feed herself:
1. Breakfast was a little late this morning so she was really hungry,
2. We began a new breakfast menu this morning (she actually picked a cinnamon roll for breakfast, but I motivated her to have cereal because it was later in the morning and the cinnamon rolls would have taken a while to bake), and
C. I can’t remember the last time she had fruit loops. She was so excited when I told her that if she picked cereal she could have fruit loops.
What a great start to a beautiful day!
Way to go Megan!
