Since Gianna has mastered the pincher grasp and has started to gum her foods I have been giving her "grown up" food while I feed her purees. Oh my, it has been a total blast and she just LOVES doing it. It has also made meal time a lot easier on our end. It keeps her preoccupied and happy without having to give her a toy. (We are trying to make meal time meal time and not meal/play with toy time.) Yesterday I gave Gianna broccoli for the first time.
Grabbing the broccoli.
Successfully getting it in her mouth.
Nom Nom Nom Nom
Success! Feeding myself is FUN!
