Feeding Himself (Well, Trying Anyway)

Ben really enjoys trying to feed himself. "Trying" is the operative word in that sentence.

He insists on holding the spoon himself. If I try to get sneaky and give him a spoon and then use a spoon myself to attempt to get food into his mouth, he commandeers both spoons. If it is a jar food or yogurt, he likes to hold that himself too. Here are the results of Ben's attempt.

I believe Lily was neatly feeding herself at around 12 months. Ben is 15 months, and clearly his skills still need some polish.

  1. Gusto is the word for it. Too much fun to be neat, no doubt.
