Mr. Independent

This one…


…. he thinks he’s hot stuff.  Mr. Big Shot.  He’s all “I eat baby mush now so infant stuff is for tiny babies.  I’m a big guy now so bring it on world.”  And with that, he’s started holding his own bottle — sometimes pushing my hands away in favor of independent dining.
