So, I read in a book that when you want to start feeding your baby solid foods, you should give her a spoon to explore for a few days before you introduce the food. This will give her time to get used to the feel of the spoon in her mouth. Well, all it really succeeded in doing for us is creating a child who insists on holding the spoon all by herself.
I have to say she did a pretty good job, even if she did get most of the food on her bib instead of in her mouth.
Gotta love that squash!
