He may not be remotely close to walking yet, but Miles’s fine motor skills are continuing to develop at a rate that is pretty amazing to witness. Within the past few days, he has started using his hands to pick up food and put it in his mouth.
Not only has he gotten pretty good at feeding himself, he’s also learned to combine his dexterity with his love of pointing at things, managing to hold out some of his food to me, then wait expectantly for me to open my mouth so he can drop it in. Yes, the son now feeds the father! Truly, the high chair tables have turned!
