Dean’s ABA Week

I just went to Walmart this week and I purchased some seasoned frozen vegetables for Dean. I don’t have enough time to buy fresh veggies and season them myself. Plus, it is cheaper to buy frozen than fresh. Fresh is best, frozen next, and never canned. I am trying to get away from canned food, besides pasta sauce. Canned veggies have no real nutrients and I know Dean’s baby food is better than that. I think he is craving texture and crunch. My dad likes the cans because it is convenient for him. Steaming veggies in the microwave are just as easy. I hope Dean likes them!

Lots of language with eye contact! 🙂 Imitated “Ready” with popper toy. Clear as a bell. Excellent progress. Yay Dean!

Dean had a great morning. Lots of eye contact. Great bringing me toy to show he wanted more. Lots of great sounds.

Dean played with new gumball toy, different potato head, new animal puzzle, looked at a different picture book, foam puzzle. Excellent snack; ate almost everything. Nice pointing, continued improvement with eye contact joint attention.

Dean did well this morning. Distracted by blocks, cried when I removed it but recovered quickly. Did well with beads on string.

Dean was in a great mood this morning. Sat well for all activities. Pointing and eye contact were great. Chose a variety of things to play.

I also bought a bunch of mini Gerber pasta meals. I totally forgot that I was going to look for frozen mini raviolis. Next week, I am going to look for them. I want to move away from prepackaged food and go to frozen since it is easier for our family. I cannot afford tons of fresh fruits and veggies. Frozen is the next best option, since you only steam what you need. If you have any suggestions, let me know. Also, I can get coupons for frozen food, but never for fresh. They should offer fresh food coupons. I could probably afford them more with coupons.

With Love,
