Zara is finding some interest in self feeding these days. She tries to reach for the spoon every time I feed her (which is only during the w/end). I give her the spoon topped with her mushy food and let her feed herself occasionally (when I was in the mood and didn't mind cleaning up the mess). She is quite good at aiming and putting the spoon into her mouth, although it always ends up at the corner of the mounth. She just bites on the spoon, and releases it with still a lot of food on the curve of the spoon. I have to remind myself that it's ok for her to mess things up sometimes, and let her have more practice with feeding herself, so that she can actually get to feed herself sooner.
