Goen's spoon soon became one of his favorite toys, and he would refuse to give it up after mealtimes. He would carry it around the house, put it in his toy bucket, and chew on it. It wasn't long before the bamboo spoon was lost (probably hiding in some drawer or in the car waiting to be rediscovered). The spoon in this picture is actually one of mine, which is designed more like a soup spoon with a wide bowl. Now he carries this one all over the house so I guess I'll have to stock up.
I was not able to find a local source for bamboo baby spoons (despite living in a rather well-to-do city), so I turned to online sources. None of them have as good a deal as I paid for the first one, but such is life. Anyway, I hope to receive my new bamboo baby spoon in the mail any day now. All I need now is a decoy for Goen to carry around.
