The other day I introduced the fork into Oliver’s daily mealtime routine. I think he really enjoys the fork, it’s like a toy that he is allowed to play with while eatting. Together we practice stabbing food and then putting the food in his mouth. It’s really quite cute to watch him eat with the fork on his own. I think he understands that food is supposed to go on the fork but he hasn’t quite figured out the mechanics of the utensil. Oliver will pick up the food off the table with his fingers and place it on his fork, then he will take the food back off the fork and put it in his mouth.
