Just Peachy!

Enrichment for Elisabeth.

While Elisabeth relies on her g-tube for all of her nutrition, I do like to give her small tastes of things - just to add interest to her little life. She can't chew, but she does pretty well with foods that are smooth - like yogurt and ice cream.

This week we bought the most delicious peaches ever! As I was eating one, it occurred to me that Elisabeth would love sinking her teeth into a juicy ol' peach. So my peach quickly became her peach. Due to her open bite, she wasn't able to actually bite any peach off (thankfully, because remember - she doesn't know how to chew), but she was able to chomp down and enjoy all the juice that came flowing out.

I'm pretty sure she was thinking,  

"Mom, you've been holding out on me! Where has this peach been my entire life?"

Now isn't that peachy keen?

This post is part of a series titled, Enrichment for Elisabeth, 
where I focus on ways to add interest and experiences into her life - 
despite the many limitations she faces.
