Baha'i Dad Chronicles: Feeding Himself

I took a break from my early morning routine of doctoral studies to greet my wife and son. As I entered the dining room, I heard Douglass Ali say "mmmmmmmm" with great pleasure. My wife announced that he was feeding himself. As I rounded the corner of the high chair I was greeted by a yogurt covered son! Feeding himself included putting the spoon in his mouth backwards getting most of it up his nose and all over his face. I also noticed that he had made some yogurt artwork all over his tray. Douglass continued, stabbing the spoon vigorously into his cup of yogurt and putting it in his mouth in whatever way he wished. Another milestone achieved, however messily.
