Ben has started expressing interest in imitating us more while eating. He likes to hold his fork and spoon. He also likes to hold onto two utensils and try to ‘cut’ his food like we do. Most of the time he just plays at it, then picks up the food item with his hand to take a bite. He is getting much better at it though! I enjoy watching him explore and try to figure out what we adults are doing at mealtime. There are so many little things in this world that we as adults just know how to do. It is fascinating to see them through the eyes of someone who doesn’t know the customs and routines.
Ben did pretty well with his bread stick this past week!
Am I doing this right?
I’m getting good at this!
He still needs a bit more practice, but he is doing really well! I have hope that some day I won’t have to pull food out of his hair after every meal. 😉
