Small moments of normalcy

I just want to share this small moment with you. I am sharing a bowl of oatmeal with Jenelle. Regular oatmeal, not baby food oatmeal. She even has her own bowl (and not a plastic baby bowl like I usually use, a real cereal bowl.)

Her eating has greatly improved in the last two months, and finally, she can manage chewing the texture of regular oatmeal. Her drinking/sipping needs improvement, but this is awesome.

As I took out two bowls to pour the oatmeal it felt so good, to make a "regular" meal for Jenelle, and enjoy it with her. I added milk and sugar to mine, she has yogurt and maple syrup in hers.

Just wanted to share.

That is soooo cool! Isn't it great to celebrate the little things? Our children sure do teach us not to take anything for granted.
