A Big Step for a Little Man

A Big Step for a Little Man

I’m trying hard not to let my obsessively controlling personality get in the way of letting Justin do things for himself. This is a particular problem when it comes to meals — it’s tough for me to sit back and let Justin try to feed himself when I know I could feed him more quickly, more neatly and more efficiently. But I know he has to figure it out. And tonight we hit a milestone: the three of us ate as a family at supper time (usually we feed Justin about an hour before we eat) and the little guy managed to chow down almost all of his food sans parental help. A couple days ago we stopped giving him the bottle, too, so now he’s exclusively drinking from sippy cups (he never held the bottle himself and he’s reluctant to hold the cup, but that’s another story).

Our baby is becoming a toddler…
