This afternoon I gave Samuel a plate of messy food (which I try to do several times a week) to let him play in. He rubs his hands it it, smashes it, and throws it off the highchair. That's usually it.
But today was different. Don't ask me why....but when I put the macaroni down in front of him he actually picked up a few pieces and ate them (without gagging!!!)
Oh man oh man. I'm pumped. (PS. Just ignore my voice. I was paying more attention to what he was doing than what I was saying. I'm pretty sure I repeated myself a few times.)
