Mafe Maria: Personal stories by autism parent mentor, Maria Stultz

Trompita tastes bananas

Don Joaquin has officially started eating solids and I thought his fan club would enjoy seeing him take his first meal of cereal, milk, and bananas. Please notice the face he makes, and how he throws himself and holds on to the chair on the last bite (towards the end of the video)… What a crazy experience for that sweet trompita!

Joaquin’s age: 4.5 months
