I have started to relinquish control. The past few weeks we have been letting Landon use silver ware to eat his food. The utensils magically turn into drumsticks by the end of dinner but he is slowly getting the hang of it. He is at the point now where he wants to do it himself. We don't mind as long as we don't have anything to do for the next three hours or so. It can be a little time consuming since he has only figured out to dip his spoon and not scoop it yet.
Here are some photos I took of him a few nights ago finishing up his yogurt. You will notice the container is empty. We were simply practicing at this point.
