Finger Feeding (... also my 100th entry)

It was a moment that I have been waited for so long...



Yeah!! Sarah is able to feed herself with picking up a piece of bread between her thumb and forefinger and move the bread from the hands to the mouth.

I have been teaching her to do this for the past 2 months, but maybe she was content with the ease of being fed, so she hesitated to learn the skill.

I can see now she is more ready for finger-feeding. I will allow her to finger-feed as much as possible. Although it is messy, but I believe it allows her to explore food and become familiar with food textures.

Footnote:
Wow…I feel old…My blogging system thingy is telling me that this is my 100th entry…the time has gone by so fast. 100 entries in 6 months. I’m happy with that, and hope that I can keep it up in the future.

Thank to you all for visiting my blog and leaving memorable comments to it. It is a priceless encouragement and it does keep this blog going...

Happy 100th Entry!

Sarah is definitely a smart girl. But watch out that she will pick up things from the floor and then transfer to her mouth.

And congrats for reaching the 100th entry!
