Ok, maybe not knives, but Elliott has been enthusiastically embracing her eating utensils this week! She squawks and signs “I want” until I hand her the spoon or fork, and then she beams (and smears yogurt on her face).
I love watching her figure out how to scoop with her spoon and stab things with her fork. She still needs a little help, but she’s really close to getting it all on her own! Today she used her spoon and fork all by herself during dinner! For breakfast she ate yogurt on her own for a little while, and for dinner she used her fork to eat carrots and potatoes and chicken all on her own! I was so proud.
