I cannot believe it's been this long since I've posted about Samara. It's way overdue.

It's been over a week since we have had a big break through with Samara......her eating has gotten so much better, she is still not a fan of milk or the pediasure but she is eating food and not gagging. THANK YOU GOD!! Here is a list of things that she has eaten and not gagged and really enjoyed

1.) Lasagna
2.) Spaghetti and Meatballs
3.)Mashed Potatoes
4.) French Fries
5.) Mac n cheese
6.)Turkey rice and vegs
7.) Cream of Wheat
8.) Cheddar Bay Biscuit from Red Lobster
9.) Crackers and Cheese puffs

I'm sure I have missed something but I cannot think of anything else. She has Therapy at CCH on Tuesdays at 4:00pm with Rueban Diaz who we are so Thankful for. He works with her sensory and eating.

Also she has finally learned how to drink from a sippy cup!!!! Although she just wants water in it. :(

Also HMG came out Friday for her first speech therapy and it went really well. Obviously she is not saying much yet but she imitates everything and that is really good. We are working on repetition, repetition,repetition......that's how they learn

Most of all I Thank God for all the changes I have seen in her in the last week or so. I go back to work in one week and I just have moments where I can't even imagine going back and then others where I do need a break. Although the break I want isn't work. LOL

Anyway I am so Thankful for the time I have had. I think she will do fine with my parents, she loves them and they love and adore her.

I haven't posted pic's in so long...after Ethan's Dentist appointment my camera battery went dead and I finally replaced it a few days ago. So I have a few pic's to post.

Thanks for all the prayers....they are working!!!


  1. Leah-

    It was great to catch up with you today! So glad that you posted these. I love the one with her drinking from her sippy cup. It's adorable. She's a cutie!! We'll definitely have to talk before you head back to work. Please keep Aaron and I in your prayers for a referral soon!! :-)

  2. What wonderful news! Sounds like she's already working on a sizeable appetite! I'm so happy to hear she's making progress - she actually has eaten a wider variety of foods than Colton has at this point! I can't wait to see you all again. Keep posting - it's great to see the pics and hear about what great progress Samara is making. Love you!

  3. I am so excited to read of Samara's progress... that is AWESOME! She is sooooooo pretty and is obviously very photogenic!
