Baby Feeds Herself Dinner

I may have been nervous that Baby doesn't feed herself. She has fed herself before. She feeds herself teething biscuits. She's fed herself pieces of food when she's been too impatient to wait for others to feed her. However, she doesn't feed herself on a regular basis. So, tonight, we sat her near the couch and placed food on her tray to see what she would do. I was nervous because she really doesn't like the tray, but she did really well as soon as she saw the pork (her favorite dinner). She even ate some string beans. Below is a video showing her try to feed herself. She had been doing really well until I started filming. You'll notice the first bunch of pieces fall out of her fist right before it gets to her mouth. Then, finally, success! She even gives herself a round of applause.

I love how she holds her mouth open while she waits for her hands to get the food to her. So cute! And that last bite, where the pork and her thumb made it past her lips, priceless!

She is adorable. I can't believe how big she has gotten!
