Eating with a spoon

by monicasjungle

Magglio often reminds me of how big he’s getting. A few months back, he started refusing to be spoon fed. He wanted to pick up his food all by himself. Now he’s back to eating certain foods that require a spoon (like yogurt or oatmeal) but every now and then he grabs for the spoon and triumphantly waves it in the air. As you can imagine, this usually causes food to go flying and also plop on the floor.

But over time, he learned how to make a connection with the spoon and his mouth. The amount of success is always dependant on how hungry he is.

Such a big boy!
