Trip has been experimenting with feeding himself with a utensil for a couple of months now. For a while, we weren't doing it very consistently, but he's now at the point where we're giving him a spoon or fork much more often. He tends to make a huge mess, but is improving his ability to actually get the food in his mouth. He's getting pretty good at using a spoon to eat yogurt and tries to pick up other things as well. He loves to play with spatulas and has tried to pick up his food with them a time or two. That's pretty funny to watch.
Taking a bite
Happy, proud, and a huge mess!
Yesterday he was being quite talkative while he fed himself some yogurt. Enjoy!
