OK, I'll try this luck last night

Phillips Seafood catered dinner last Friday night.

Hi Everyone,

I tried to update the blog last night, but had no luck. The connection here is not the best. Thanks for the cookies Denise! We shared them with all the familes at dinner last night. Delicious! We all enjoyed a little love and happiness! How creative! Thank you! (Yeah, I cried AGAIN! LOL)

Ethan's world is going to change next week. Now that he understands the reward process for eating (Thomas videos), the feeders are going to start experimenting with punishment. If Ethan spits out his food, which he did approximately 8 million times the first week here, he will be punished. When we're sure he understands the punishment process, new food introduction will be stepped up. The first food goal is to get him to accept a new drink.

Folks here are a little leery about trying to push too hard on the food because noone is sure that it is comfortable for Ethan to eat. If we push too much food and it hurts, it will only reinforce the fact that he should avoid eating new foods.

We're going to go have some fun today. We're going to go to the National Aquarium. I hope everyone out there has fun today too!

Miss you!

Molly & Ethan
