Growing Out On A Limb

Everything is better with ice cream…

… and that includes learning how to use a spoon! 

We started both of our kids on food with the baby-led weaning method… basically lots of (real) finger foods and no spoon feeding by us.  Oliver’s transition to utensils was late and slow and, in fact, he still eats with his fingers fairly often. 

We started Emery the same way and weren’t thinking of forks and spoons yet, but lately he has been insistent on having one (which means moaning and pointing and refusing to eat until he gets one).  I’m pretty sure he just wants to be like us or, rather, like his big brother. 

Fine by me.  And he’s actually picked it up really quickly.  Ice cream is a good incentive though. 

Figuring it out…

Wrong end but … still tasty? 

Good to the last bite! 

Of course, Oliver loves ice cream too.  Can’t you tell?  Clearly I am interrupting something very important! 

“Smile!” 

That’s better (even if it is a tad forced and full of let’s-get-this-over-with-so-I-can-get-back-to-my-ice-cream)!
