I gave my ever-hungry boy a bowl of pureed peaches and a nubby spoon. He knew what to do and attacked that bowl of yummy fruit. He had great control of the spoon and never missed his mouth the first 5-6 times he tried. He was very happy and proud of himself!
Then he started rubbing his hair with it. Then he used the spoon to sling peaches across the kitchen. Then he tried to feed the dog.
I'll let you imagine what the highchair seat, cabinets and floor looked like when he was done.
