From Brian: Robert eats and drinks very well all by himself.
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!
If we’re lucky, he eats enough by spoon and hand before he tries to turn the yogurt container upside down.
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.
