Hah! I knew Little J had the hand-eye coordination thing sufficiently to feed himself. Usually, he insists that I feed him anything that requires silverware, and i'm concerned enough about his food intake that I do. But just a few minutes ago, guess what the Little monkey did? he came over to where i had an open jello cup and a spoon, and started eating it. And not only that, he was picking out the fruit with the spoon and feeding it to me! Hmm, I guess it depends what kind of motivation he has.
