Happy November 1st

Besides a sweet Halloween, Quinn has been the ultimate helper raking leaves with Ryan in the front yard. I thought these two were quite the pair!

It is hard to believe November 1st is here. Only 54 days until Christmas :)

The sippy cup effort is going s-l-o-w-l-y but we did have a break through when Ryan gave Quinn a regular straw to drink from. This straw has been met with interest and curiosity which is great!

We've had some conversations with a specialist at OHSU regarding Quinn's gagging episodes. From those conversations the specialist is suggesting Quinn has reflux. We're learning a bit more about this and will go up to OHSU for a bit of testing in the near future to confirm that thought. There is medication for kids that deal with reflux (which causes the throwing up) and most of the time kids outgrew the reflux and their bodies mature.

In other thoughts, we've been eating lots of pumpkin things so I'm going to post some favorite pumpkin recipes soon!

Those pics are so cute! I love how he wants to use dad's rake and not his little one. Have you tried the "party" song again with the sippy cup? I'm glad you heard back from the OHSU specialist; it's good to have some possibilities.

Ah, yes, pumpkin! I made those cookies this week, and they are gooood! On my grocery list is the Libby's Pumpkin. I'm stocking up for the holidays.
