Today was our big day! It went much better then I thought. Today they worked on getting Peyton to except a dry spoon being in his mouth. As long as he was "taking bits" he was allowed to watch an Seame Street ABC DVD that he loved. If he did not take a bit after telling him twice then the movie was turned off until he did take a bite. Each time he took a bit they gave him big praise!!! To my surprise we did not have to change clothes at all today. They all said that he did great. Tomorrow they are going to work on him closing his lips around the spoon. I am hoping that tomorrow will be as successful as today.
This is a blog I created to keep you updated on the journey of Peyton Andrew Nichols. He was a 25 weeker born on Sept. 2, 2005, weighing only 1 pound 4 ounces. He lived 207 days in the NICU at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas then 43 days at Our Children's House at Baylor before he was able to come home. What a great journey we are on with him. God is good all the time!
