My Girl Eats Asparagus

Any why not?  After all, she ate a whole dandelion as we were leaving the park today. 🙂

The Specific Carbohydrate diet is arranged in phases.  Each stage introduces (one by one) progressively more difficult to digest foods.  We have been on Stage 2 for the past 2 months, which mostly consists of well cooked and often pureed veggies and fruits.  Yuuuuum (yawn!)  Today we got to introduce asparagus.  I wasn’t sure Hannah would eat it.  After all, asparagus does have kind of a strange texture, and Hannah was becoming an increasingly picky eater for the months preceding starting the SCD.   She played with it, then ate all 4 pieces that I gave her!  How many kids eat asparagus and want more?  Maybe the ones who prefer to eat dandelions over the homemade sausage patty their mom made them for lunch?  🙂

There was a time ( a long stretch of time) when I couldn’t laugh or smile at all about the quirky things that Hannah does/did because “maybe it’s caused by autism”: and autism was the enemy and my greatest fear.  Now that I’ve spent almost a year digesting the possible, and now that we are seeing so many improvements in Hannah, I can finally smile at things like this.  That is worth celebrating!
