Making Sounds

Puckachu (as I call Vera) has been puckering her lips and making sounds.

It's her newly learnt past-time.

Over the past year, we've noticed more mouth activity:

1) Sucking and chewing expertly on her index fingers

2) Puckering her lips into a 'siew mai'

3) Brushing her lips left and right on our faces

4) Wanting to bite our faces

5) Able to hold Ark Probe and insert it into her mouth and move it like a toothbrush

We stopped Feeding Therapy after it triggered an aspiration episode when she was much younger at about a year old.

Now, I get a sense that she is ready to pick up where we left off. But we'll definitely tread with caution this time. Who knows, the little porky may surprise us along the way!

It would be fantastic if she could one day enjoy the taste of food.
