We have been working with J to pick up food and feed herself. While at my mom's, my mom and sister-in-law tried. I have tried. Allen has tried. This weekend at her party, several people tried. J just picks up a piece of food and tosses it in the floor. The dog, of course, loves it.
Last night, when Allen came home from work, J was in her booster seat. He sat down next to her and put a Gerber cheese puff on her tray like he's been doing a lot lately. Basically waiting for her to feed it to the dog. WELL. Last night, she picked it up and put it in her mouth as if she's been doing that for months. I missed it, but Allen said "WOW! Has she been doing this all day?" Me: "Been doing what?" Allen: "Watch this!" and he puts another one on her tray and she picks it up and eats it.
And so the sudden jump into the world of Josie feeding herself occurred. Here are some pics from today (proving last night wasn't a fluke):
Hmmm. What's that on my tray?
