Feeding frenzy

Drake is getting much better with finger foods. He pretty much feeds himself all his meals now (except for yogurt and applesauce and things that need to be spooned) and can pick up banana and slippery things as well as Pirate's Booty which is featured in this video. He almost always uses his left hand, and though the control isn't perfect and he sometimes "blindly feels" for the food, as documented here, he gets the job done. Very proud of my little dude.

Well, I have to tell you, that is pretty darn amazing! He has REALLY good accuracy in terms of getting the food in his mouth, and is picking things up so nicely, too. Honestly, he's doing better at it than Max, who's about to be 6, if it gives you any perspective (and I say that because when Max was this little, I craved perspective like that). GO, DRAKE!!!!
