Spoon Anyone?

Each child has his or her own little quirks that endear them to us all the more. One I have come to note about Noble is his love of spoons. This kid will not suck on a binki, a bottle, or a sippy cup. But he loves to walk around the house with a spoon either in his hand or his mouth. I think it is kind of funny so I decided to get a photo of him with his spoon in his mouth. I tried to get a photo of him for about 10 minutes. Here is what I got:
Do you see a pattern here? Every time I pointed the camera at this kid he turned and took off in the opposite direction. How in the world was I going to get this picture? Then I had a thought. I went and got the phone. Here he is below reaching for the thing with buttons that calls people.
And here he is with his treasured phone.
In the end I did manage to get a couple of shots with him facing forward. He has a spoon either in his mouth or his hand in every picture but it is hard to see it in some of them.

Did you get my email? I thought of you all day yesterday....

I can't believe how big Noble is getting.

I can't believe it has almost been two years.

I can't believe it has almost been two years and I am still here.

Two years closer.... someday, just not today.

This can be very dangerous. It's cute but I think I would take the spoon away if I were you.

I love it, that is just too cute!!!

He is such a cutie...
but do be careful - maybe find him one of those soft toddler spoons with a rounded handle...less likely to jam in his mouth should he take a tumble.
I love that outstretched foot while taking a walk down the hall!

With him just learning to walk....this is really frightening to me....please take the spoons away!!!

I love that he turns the other way when you try to take a picture! My 1 yr old little guy is the same way. :)

He does look cute, but I'll also add to the others' cautions. Years ago, I saw a "Rescue 911" episode where a 4-year-old boy was running through his house with a toothbrush in his mouth. He ended up falling forward on it. It took a very risky surgery to remove the toothbrush from the back of his throat. I've never forgotten that, and have never let our kids walk around with anything in their mouths.
