I'll feed myself, thanks

For the last week, Elijah has been gradually going off his solids. At first, I thought he was just being picky and only wanting sweet things, but when he turned down mango (which he loves), I figured there was more to it. I was so sick of the battle to get food into him that at lunch today, I just cut up a slice of toast into fingers and ripped up a cheese slice (something he's never had before) and let him at it. I'm not sure how much he ate, but he was definitely interested in putting it all in his mouth and chewing. You can see some of the bits that he dropped in the bottom of the photo.Sometimes he missed his mouth too!
