Now With More Motor Function than the Renaissance Festival

While eating with hands might be for ok for some, Max is just much classier than that. For the past few weeks, he's been trying to grab food off the sppon as it heads for his face or, at times, just grabbing the spoon: "Gah! No, Dad, this is how you use a spoon!" Whereupon, he bangs the spoon into a bowl or onto his highchair tray.

The other day, after some intense spoon-jamming into a yogurt cup, he suddenly began to aim the yogurt-coated business-end of the spoon at his face. This, folks, is what we call in Parenting, a Major Milestone!

And, as the boy as proven in the past, once you show him the path, he's a fast learner. A few days later, bored with the spoon, he went for something with a tinge of danger: the fork.

It's not clear how any of this development will have a direct effect on his steps towards mowing. I do suppose that you need to eat before you have the energy to mow so, I guess it's a good thing.

For you total Max freaks, here are some bonus pictures that were too dangerously cute for the interweb blog-o-rama. This includes one that proves that, while we feel like we're doing more while multi-tasking, we're really just doing more, poorly.
