learning to use a spoon

we let hendrix use his own spoon to eat his peach-applesauce at lunch today. 

he was very pleased that we allowed him this great step of independence.  he was actually better at it than i expected him to be, as he understand the basic idea of dipping it into the food and putting it into his mouth.  the coordination was just a little off yet.... 

it was quite. the. mess.  i don't imagine he could have gotten much in his mouth by assessing how much was on the floor and his clothes and high chair.

and at some point, for whatever reason, he got the spoon turned around and kept trying to eat the wrong end.  :)  

it was a valiant effort for a first try little pal, keep up the good work!
