Many of you may not know this, but Curren has not been a typical eater. He did not start eating solids at the recommended 6 months of age. He H.A.T.E.D solid food. He hated pureed food. He hated it all. And I'm not exaggerating. He spit it out, he gagged, he cried, he screamed. The food often collected in the front of his mouth. And this lasted for months and months. Finally, in November, we went through the process of getting approved through the Regional Center, a local agency that offers free government-funded therapy (Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy). It's highly esteemed and has outstanding results. And Curren was approved. But, ironically enough, by mid-December, a month after being approved and finally getting in touch with a local OT, Curren started to eat solids--before even meeting with the OT!
He turned on a dime. He became excited to eat. He now sits in his chair and chows down.
I have no idea what changed. But, in his own time, Curren became an eater and lover of solid foods.
And what a CUTIE he is.
