The Curse of the Second Child…

1 06 2009

The curse of the second child is that developmental milestones aren’t as closely watched as they are for the first child.

We almost let this milestone pass unobserved: Patrick is very close to insisting on feeding himself, no matter the mess. It started with simple things, like Cheerios and crackers. It’s progressed to yogurt. The mess factor is going up.

He’ll still let us spoon-feed him if the meal starts that way. If he starts feeding himself, he expects that’s how the whole meal will go.
