Good Eater

From Brian: Robert eats and drinks very well all by himself.
Yogurt 04, September 21, 2009, 11:13 a.m.

Yogurt 04, September 21, 2009, 11:13 a.m.


For example, his first breakfast is usually banana which I slice into semicircles and he eats by hand. His second breakfast is often yogurt which he feeds himself by spoon.

Eventually, it gets messy.

Finally, he’ll put the spoon down.

Then, it’s time to use the hands!
Yogurt 02, September 21, 2009, 11:13 a.m.

If we’re lucky, he eats enough by spoon and hand before he tries to turn the yogurt container upside down.

Bottoms up!

He drinks very well by himself, too, either by sippy cup:

Or by straw:

However, he will tilt a cup backward despite using a straw (sometimes leading to a spill!).

Still, it is so great for us that he can do much to feed himself.

Robert ate cake from whomever would feed him! (Only the cake and frosting, though. None of the strawberry filling.)

Robert had a great time, but after three hours, he was tired! Robert and I took Vickie home and then he fell asleep on the way home. I lifted him asleep from his car seat into bed and he had a three-hour nap. Yay!
