Samuel is very good at feeding himself now. Finally!
Since I got the bento stuff, I tried to make shaped rice (most of the time its heart and star shape)for him. I try to make his food in a more presentable manner and request him to eat by himself.
He usually eats with the TV on. Most of the time when he is too engrosed with the show, he either forgets to chew or continue feeding himself. The maid will be there to remind him to eat. Although he needs to be reminded, we are already very happy that he is willing to feed himself.
I'm not sure if it is because of the so called more presentable food that makes him willing to feed himself. Before this, we have not really let him try to feed himself because he is very slow even when we feed him, what more if we need him to feed himself. But practise makes perfect. If he is hungry he can finish his meal pretty fast now.
