Otto has decided that the only way he will eat is if he can spoon feed himself, peel the banana himself or have complete control over the situation.  Unfortunately often this means that lately he isn't eating a lot as he lacks these skills even though we are trying to teach him, and often he ends up looking like this or worse at the end of a meal.

Part of me is so happy to see his fiercely independent spirit shining through, what Mumma wouldn't be, but to also see the struggle within himself between wanting to do it himself and needing to eat is difficult.  I know this will soon pass, and he will master the skills needed but in the meantime I will worry just a little bit at each mealtime that this gorgeous little boy of mine isn't getting enough.
