Feeding Himself

Silas decided to forgo Mommy feeding him with a utensil of any sort a few months ago. Finger foods took the place of all things pureed during meal time. The pediatrician gave the go ahead for dairy products at Silas' nine month check up. Since spoons were no longer acceptable at the dinner table (according to Silas), this meant no yogurt for the baby boy. A couple of weeks ago, I was able to get a bite or two into his mouth with a spoon. He grabbed the spoon out of my hand and put it into his mouth. I told him that he needed a little more on his spoon and then helped him dip it into the bowl of yogurt. He was just so pleased with himself! He would jab the spoon down into the bowl and stick it back into his mouth. It was so cute and very messy.
"Now, how exactly is this done?"Look at all of those teeth!So proud!What a big boy! He is growing up so fast.
