Henry is learning to use a fork.
This afternoon at lunch he began by slowing stabbing individual elbow macaroni.
Then he began screaming for someone to stab the macaroni for him.
Then he just held the fork high in the air with his right hand, and scooped macaroni into his mouth with his left hand.
Then we noticed that he wasn't really chewing the macaroni before swallowing it, there was more of a sucking action going on. He tends to do this while eating so he'll end up with a wad of bagel stuck to the roof of his mouth for like an hour.
Brian and I just watched him suck elbows down for a minute, then Brian said, "Buddy, why don't you just stick 'em right in your diaper? Cut out the middle man."
