Yes, you read that right. (If you enlarge the photo you can see pears that go all the way up his arm! He's eating fresh pears now, not pureed. He practically squashes them to pieces when he picks them up, though.)
Anyway...William has been getting very picky with his eating lately. He simply doesn't want to eat like a big boy anymore. He'll eat, but only little bits. All he really wants is milk. milk. milk. He fusses, he squirms, he yells. It's all driving me nuts and I don't know what to do about it.
He has always been a perfect eater, eating everything I place in front of him or place in his mouth for him. Now, it's like he's entering the Terrible Twos and has to protest every. little. thing.
I tried something different the other day. I let him hold his own spoon and "feed" himself. It was extremely messy, but it did the trick. That was exactly what he wanted.
I promptly went out and bought a carpet protector!
