Ben & His Birthday Cupcake!

I hope you laugh with us as our little boy enjoys a taste of heaven. In all honesty this was a huge milestone for Ben! Before his failed trache removal at the age of two he was eating baby foods and loved it. sine then he has loved the taste of foods but has been unable to swallow properly. If you watch closely he is learning to chew his food.

That ability was obviously discovered by his own observation of us and his classmates at school since he has not received enough speech therapy to teach him. It's a rather gross process for some how we checked to make sure he ate the solid part of the cupcake by venting his G-Tube a little later in the day. In turn our family received a gift from Ben on a special day for him which we've found to be not unusual.

Did Joan even get a bite of Devil's Food cupcake? That's the flavor she asked for...I specifically make the chocolate for her, but I think between Ben and Uncle J she might not have gotten one :) ?!?! I'm so glad that Ben enjoyed it and it'll be awesome when he gets in to see a Speech Path again!!!
