Here come a bunch of posts to update you on Harrison (why can't I update this more often?!)
Harrison is doing great! Lately he's been learning how to eat all kinds of table food. Right now he seems to like pretty much any carbs, cheese, bananas, applesauce and no vegetables whatsoever. He get it from his mama! He loves pizza, lasagna, Chick-fil-a fries and the occasional grilled chicken nugget. One time he ate an entire piece of pizza. I couldn't believe it. We tried giving him an oatmeal cream pie (at the suggestion of his G-Pa) and he destroyed it. Ate the whole thing really fast. So he also loves his desserts!
About a month ago one of his doctors suggested we try some reflux medicine (he was still only taking bottles when sleeping). It seems like it is helping him have more of an appetite and he's begun taking bottles while awake this week- finally!
He's pulling up alot and taking steps from side to side. He's walking with a toy that he pushes so hopefully it wont be long before he's walking with no help at all!
He's babbling alot but not much that we can discern. He says "da da" "ma ma" "baby" (but not when looking at a baby so he doesnt know what it means), "clap" and his physical therapist thought she heard him imitating me saying "chicken." I was skeptical but maybe he did.
And, here is why this post is called Old Man Face. There were a few weeks this summer where he would make this face all.the.time. What a funny guy!
