Harry's been asserting his independence at mealtimes more lately by refusing to open his mouth. At first I wondered whether he just needed a pause to swallow, but now it's clearer that he's, at least more often, trying to refuse to eat. Most of the time he'll forget his purpose before to long and open his mouth to hoot or holler. And that's typically a time to insert the next spoonful, but he's already getting wise to that and is becoming more adamant in his refusals.
Here's Uncle Ben giving feeding a finicky Harry a shot. That's a new chair Harry's grandmother found for Harry that matches the other deck chairs perfectly.
