extended lunch

Now that he’s on solid foods, Toby objects to anyone helping him put food in his mouth (unless it’s yoghurt, the only thing he’ll still eat off a spoon because he loves it so much. Although a couple of nights ago he tried to use the spoon himself, and ended up slapping the pot out of Emma’s hand, resulting in yoghurt on the carpet). However it does mean that some foods take some time for him to eat. He’s very meticulous, picking each thing up between (betwixt?) forefinger and thumb, so each … pea … is … eaten … separately. Yesterday we sent him to school with a pot of pasta shells and peas for his lunch, which took him about an hour and a quarter to eat.
