Lately at meals, she has been very insistent on taking the spoon away from me. How do babies have such super strength? She always wins. The other night she wrested the spoon from my hand and started banging it on the plate in what appeared to be a poor pantomime of eating with it.
So today at lunch I gave her a bowl of broccoli cheddar soup and a spoon to see how she liked it. Here's how it went:
For those of you who noticed the plate of peaches and broccoli florets -- I turn the plate upside down because otherwise she tips the plates onto the floor. With the plate upside down, she gets to try out using dishes and she also can't pick it up. The bowl of soup, however, was in danger of being hurled through the air at any moment. She never launched it, though. Much to the dogs' disappointment.
