I took this kiddo out for a yummy noodle lunch and some quality mom-son time. He loves eating with a big boy fork and stuffing his face with cheesy cheesy mac n cheese. As he grows bigger each day, he also becomes more independent and loves to do things on his own. Feeding himself is just another step in the process. Although we did baby led weaning from the start, it's still such a miracle to me that he has learned to use a fork and spoon, and can successfully manage a meal on his own.
