Ever since I let Jake eat the yogurt with his spoon - if it involves a fork or spoon to be eaten, Jake wants to do it all by himself. When the spoon doesn't cut it (aka, he can't get enough fast enough into his mouth), he resorts to his hands. Awesome. :-) You may be getting tired of watching him eat, but we had chili the other night. A LOT of the chili made it to his mouth, trust me, but A LOT made it everywhere else, too!! He had 2 bowls of chili and 3 huge spoonfuls of LIMA BEANS - go Jake!!
