At an age when most kids struggle just to sit through an entire meal, Neil Patrick Harris's 5-year-old son Gideon has already mastered the art of eating with chopsticks. On Wednesday night Harris's husband, actor and chef David Burtka, shared two photos of the parents' little one expertly wielding a pair of chopsticks, and we have to say: We're impressed!

"Mastering the art of chopsticks," Burtka captioned the first photo of Gideon posing proudly with a piece of food dangling from his utensils. His twin sister Harper can be seen sitting behind him with both cheeks visibly stuffed with food.

Burtka shared another 'gram of Gideon honing his skills, this time in public. In a second snap, Burtka captured him sitting beside a giant bowl of broth at a restaurant and somehow managing to navigate a gigantic chunk of food toward his gaping mouth. "And I thought I had a big mouth ..." he chided his little one in the caption.

The Burtka Harris twins have quite the culinary background already. Just last month Harris shared a photo of Gideon feeding himself tuna crudo and clams at Eataly in New York City with a very adult-looking fork.

A little chef in the making? We'll just have to wait and see!
