Self Feeding is Fun

It seems like every day Parker learns to do something new.  His most recent obsession has been feeding himself.  He has really been working on his fine motor skills.  He is great at reaching out and grabbing food but not so great about getting it into his mouth. 

I constantly find little bits of food smashed in his palms.  Bananas are by far his favorite food and the worst to feed him.  We end up with a sticky child and banana every where but his mouth.  I must say that he definitely gets an A for effort.

I do consider myself a little fortunate, clean up isn't all that bad.  The tray is dishwasher safe and Dexter is always at the ready when Parker drops a crumb.  He rushes in and cleans it up fast!
