LO is coming along smashingly with his weaning. He recognises that when his placemat comes out and his bib goes on - his food is ready. We moved our dining room table around so it's now to the edge of our dining room, instead of in the middle of the room, to give big brother more space to play in - but it means I sit quite close to LO. What I didn't expect was little one to get upset with me sitting near him. I wondered why. I'm pretty sure he likes me. I wondered if it was because he was getting frustrated at not being able to get his food and saw that the plate in his placemat was nearly empty so I started to pick up some bits of food from the placemat and from his bib pocket to put back in (can't waste food right?) but just as I reached over he grabbed my fork. When I moved it away he got angry! Boy, does he have a strong grip. I tried again - and he reached again - this time though - he squealed and cried... and the only thing to stop him wasn't to give him more food but a spoon to play with. And since then I've had to make sure he gets a spoon with his meal with another spoon nearby just in case he drops it so I can, with lightening speed, replace it - or we know soon enough when LO doesn't have a piece of cutlery nearby!
