Bananas!!

I decided to be a bit crazy adventurous today and see how Kate would do with finger foods. 

We had a few bananas at the house so I cut one into pieces and let her go to town.  She took the pieces, mashed the up, threw a ton on the ground, got some in her mouth, and had a great time!!

I think she thought it was a toy and not food as this was the face she gave me when she finally got some banana in her mouth.  I guess she doesn't like the texture as she loves banana puree.


I don't think she liked using her hands to eat because she grabbed her spoon and tried to get the banana on the spoon and feed herself!


(Disclaimer: Our highchair isn't always this dirty - she had sweet potatoes before getting the banana and made a huge mess.)

I am impressed she can pick those up! Pretty sure my girls didn't master the pincer grasp until like 9 months. LOL.

The pictures of your "crazy" day are hysterical! I have had two bananas sitting on my island that I want to give to Jack but have literally been too busy to feed them to him (mom of the year over here).

I would say to try tomatoes. They are firm enough for the pincer grip but basically just sweet water.

She is just precious- thank you for sharing!

I dont know whats good with her stomach but if you roll the banana pieces in super crushed up regular cherios, its easier to pick up :)
