Spaghetti Face (And Hands)
I was catching up on some reading from the book 'What to Expect the Toddler Years' and a discussion about self feeding caught my attention. Here is what the book had to say: "If a toddler with a spoon (or a fork or a plate or a bowl) can be considered armed and dangerous, you're going to have to learn how to live dangerously." So I decided to live dangerously and give you full control of your spoon and a plate of spaghetti. Yes, I could have guessed the outcome and yes, I know spaghetti is messy but who doesn't love a kid covered in spaghetti? You quickly figured out that using your hands was much easier and faster than using the spoon and here is how it turned out:
You have added a couple of new words since my last post about your vocabulary. You now say "mi" for "milk" and "udu" for "all done". But when you say "udu" you also sign it. It's so great! I love that you sign too. I have been signing "more" and "all done" for awhile and I just love that you have picked it up.
