Even though Jake and Joey are already 17 months old, they don’t have much experience feeding themselves with utensils. It’s not their fault. I just haven’t been able to bring myself to face that kind of mess. You can imagine the range that two babies, who already show talent for throwing, could get with projectile objects like spoons.
But I was feeling brave and decided to give them a shot at developing a new skill.
They. loved. it. I mean LOVED using a spoon.
Not a whole lot actually made it into their mouths, but it was enough to make them happy.
They were not happy, however, when the meal ended and we took their spoons away. Two angry babies! We promised them there would be more opportunities.
It’s exciting to see them start to get the hang of something new.
