the bowl episode
I was feeding Owen lunch--food he normally loves--and he was eating just fine for a few minutes until he decided to be super upset. I couldn't figure out what was bothering him. I tried gettiing out some peas because he hadn't had those in a while and usually chows them down. He ate a few then got super upset again. I noticed that when I brought the bowl of peas closer to him he would calm down. So I held the bowl within his reach---he just wanted to eat his food out of the bowl. Maybe he felt more like a big boy if he ate out of a container like big people do. SO, he ate the rest of his lunch like a charm---from the bowl, of course.
