I sure love pickles, and Mommy sure loves these photos! (She said the first two especially melt her heart.)
My new "thing" is playing/sucking/holding vegetables...and pickles are my favorite. Mom even got a new flavor (extra intense) today, and I loved that one too.
My feeding team thinks this is great therapy for me since many children with feeding issues need strong flavors to "wake up" their mouth. Because some of my cranial nerves are not functioning (facial palsy, swallowing, etc.), it is possible I have little to no taste or smell. Who knows? We are hoping that isn't the case since I do show a preference for some baby foods over others...and I definitely enjoy lollipops. Today Mom got me sour worms...and those sure were fun too. For now we will just keep experimenting with more and more flavors. (I don't actually "eat" any of these items yet...but they are sure fun to play with! I'm still being stubborn with oral feedings.)
Pretty darn cute, right? I know...but wait until you see me with my pickle! :)
