This is the story of my life as a SAHM to a deaf-blind former 24 week preemie. Isolating, frustrating, heartbreaking, and so worth it.

Today we were practicing our trick or treating behavior. Last year Noah gave all the candy back and some people were a bit offended. I was hoping to convince him this year to at least keep all of the candy in the bag until we got home. We've been practicing chewing his tri-chew dipped in melted chocolate in feeding therapy and he has licked a few chocolate bars, but he's never ever even considered putting an actual food object in his mouth. Much to my surprise after he had trick or treated a few times he pulled out a 3 musketeers and asked me to open it. Here is the result...
Maybe next year he'll actually consume the chocolate.
