The above photos were taken a few mornings ago when I was feeding Oscar cheerios with a big spoon. He grabbed the spoon from my hand, and proceeded to feed himself. I grabbed my camera and snapped the process of him putting the spoon in the bowl and successfully getting cherrios into his mouth. I just let him do it, and watched quietly as he figured it all out. I won’t lie – There was a pang of sadness as it was an obvious indication that he’s growing up. But that was overshadowed by my excitement that he is learning, and wants to try to do things on his own.
