I think we need to master the pincer grasp and the hand to mouth transfer before we try this again... She was doing really good eating her cookies and zwieback toast and cheese puffs and is starting to get good at picking up her little gerber puffs and yogurt drops and putting them in her mouth so I thought she could handle this, but no... it was not fun for mommy!
And she insists on dropping everything into the seat of her chair or raising it up above her head to try and put it over the back of her high chair. I don't know why she is doing this but it is really annoying. It wasn't so annoying with the puffs... but it IS with diced cooked carrots! All they do is mush into her seat!
I am scared to try again. I may just spoon feed her until she is 5.
Afterwards we went straight to the bathtub! We now have to bathe her in the bathtub instead of the sink. She has too much energy and leg muscles now to bathe her in the sink. She kept getting into everything around the sink. It was a total pain! So I stuck her little pool in the bathtub. It's perfect! And a lot cheaper than those bathtub things! It was only like $4 at Wal-Mart. It is great when washing her hair. I just lay her back and put her head on the ring part and rinse away. Today she decided she was going to crawl halfway out of it into the tub and splash in the water that was around the little pool. She loves to take baths. I have to take her out because after a while her water gets cold and she starts shivering. But she never wants to get out!
