Independent Eater

After Scarlett's first few solid feelings at 6 months, she quickly realized she did not like baby food, and she especially did not like being fed. After too many attempts of getting a spoon into a fighting mouth, we decided (or should I say she decided) to feed her primarily finger food. At almost a year, she's eating pretty much anything she can manage to gum (she only has 4 teeth). Her favorites are spaghetti, broccoli, meatballs, tofu, cheese, and of course every baby's favorite food, Cheerios. Just like her brother, she hates bibs and will let us know she is done by dumping her food on her head. Lately I have brought back the spoon and let her have a go at it herself. Quite a messy success.
