Maryam and Charlie Mae's 1st trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Yep, we dressed them alike and leaned them up against each other and pumpkins! And what great photos we got of the occasion! The Hastons took off to Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi today, so we made sure to get Maryam & Charlie's photos taken last night before they took off.
It was a beautiful night to go to a pumpkin patch! Sadly, we did not buy any pumpkins, it was more just a photo op than anything else!

Here is a picture of us Langdons minus Mr. Bishop. We didn't think they'd let us bring him in.

I forgot to mention that Maryam had an Occupational Therapy assessment last Friday. She was seen by a feeding specialist and she helped us with some new techniques that might help Maryam eat food easier and maybe suck on the bottle. She actually took two swigs off the bottle while the OT was feeding her. I was so happy I almost cried! She gave us a tool called a NUK brush and so far she's eating better using that tool than she ever did with the spoon. So, wish us luck! And I'll keep you updated on how her eating develops. So far, its been really good. She's been eating the rice cereal more and spitting food out less. And we're also working on desensitising her gag reflex. She has a VERY sensitive gag reflex, so sensitive in fact that a tongue depressor sends in into a fit of retching. YUCKY! But these exercises should help.

Hello, How cute are the girls. They look like they love each other. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures, I feel real blessed. So glad our little Angel is starting to eat. It will only get better, everyone's prayers are working. I'm off to Europe next week for two and a half weeks. Going with my friend Trude. Can't wait, I'm sure Ken will drive the boys nuts! Take good care and I'll write when I get back. Love to all, Marietta
