Forks and Spoons

We've take a big step in the last few weeks. Graduating to silverware! Well, sort of. . .

Last week we tried some spaghetti. See where the spoon is?



































But, overall, not a bad experience.

We've also done ravioli with a little bit of success. Jude actually eats better with a fork than with a spoon most times.

But don't ask me what inspired me to attempt this solo today. I served ravioli and black olives because those are the boy's favorite. All was going well. He was using the fork. That is, until the olives. Jude asked for more olives, and in the 10 seconds it took me to go to the refrigerator and get them, this is what I came back to:































10 freaking seconds! I'd hate to see what I would have come back to if I had actually taken the time to cut the olives in the kitchen instead of bringing them to the table first. . .

Too cute!

I waited too long with my first to give him the free reign over the silverware. I was just afraid of the mess!

Such an adorable mess, though!

I think kids are cute with spaghetti faces. Their was a little girl at the church dinner last Wednesday night that had spaghetti all over her face her hair and her clothes, but they always clean up well. Too adorable!
