DD3 started eating with a fork and spoon (Royal Dalton For kids real silverware kid size) at right at 12 months. She can spear and scoop pretty well but she has amazing fine motor skills. I don't recall my other two showing much proficiency.
Holy cow , that is amazing! I do have little dessert forks and spoons I could try letting DD use, but I can pretty much guess she'll toss them aside (she's really big on tossing the spoon after every single bite and god forbid I should try to take it away from her before she does) and just lunge for the food with both hands .
