Intensive feeding day 16

8:45am-9:30am - Meal 1
Mom started the day off by feeding me my bites (food) and drink, doing my verbal rewards and my toys.  She did everything while Ms. Jess watched to make sure mommy did a good job.
I give her a A- ;)
11:45am-12:30pm - Meal 2

The second meal it was just Mommy and me in the room.
Mom must be hearing voices in her head because she would talk to someone in the middle of my eating.
I give her an A on this feeding.
12:00pm-2:00pm - Nap time

No thank you!  I tried very hard to get out of nap time by giving mommy a HUGE hug and saying "eye lala ooo".  Mommy cried but she did not let me get out of my nap.
2:45pm-3:30pm - Meal 3

It was just mommy and me again.
When Ms. Jess came in after the feeding she said it looks like mom has been doing this for years.
As if I would allow that to happen!
3:45pm - head home

Home, home, take me home!
First you have to find me!
Where am I?
Bro-Ther, how was feeding therapy today?
It was good, mom did pretty good, too.
What did you get to eat?
Who knows, when it is pureed it all looks the same.
But it tastes different.
Everything tastes different from pediasure, Sis!
Boy kid, you are missing a whole world with not eating!
Mom's note - I got to feed Gabriel his whole meal at 6 and 8 pm.  He ate yogurt and pudding as his meal and his thickened pediasure out of the squirt bottle for his drink.  Gabriel did a very good job.  He did throw up just under half of his last meal shortly after finishing the meal.  I know that Gabriel's therapist will call tomorrow to check and see how he is doing.  Gabriel is not use to eating a whole big meal that late at night.  He typically only drinks his pediasure and does not eat.  He handled throwing up very well!  And we managed to not get any on anything other than his empty plate on the table.  The picture below was taken not even 60 seconds before Gabriel threw up, as you can see he ate everything before he got sick.
