Spoon feeding Samuel requires a bit of distraction. If he ever sees the spoon coming, he bats it away with his hand or whines and cries until feeding is absolutely impossible. Recently, we've been playing YouTube videos of Sesame Street songs during meals. I'm pretty sure we've played just about every SS song available, but it's obvious he has a favorite. Every time we play "What I Am" Samuel gives the biggest smile (thanks for suggesting this song Britney!)
Here's a super short video of his reaction to the song while he ate dinner....sorry about the poor quality.
