We also tried different cups, which was just fun. Charlie loves grape juice the way some people love beer. He grabs gleefully at the cup and tips it back, half the juice running down the front of his clothes. He smacks/savors what does make it into his mouth and then swallows. He then immediately tries to take another sip. I think it's pretty fun watching his abandon when it comes to drinking. Surely this will make him popular in college.
The other major news was the unveiling of the Rifton chair. My OT managed to get one from somewhere--she's like an equipment yenta or something--she borrows from this family, digs around in the warehouse where she works, and viola! She's found a two-hundred dollar chair for you to use. She fixed this one up with a stiff cardboard back to provide a little more support. We're supposed to use it every day, which shouldn't be a problem.
Finally, for homework, we've been instructed to keep a food journal this week of all the table foods we try and how he reacts. This should be interesting. I've never been especially good at assignments; 90% of my academic career was spend furiously scribbling stuff down five minutes before class started.
I can't believe it's only Thursday--this feels like the longest week ever.
