We started doing finger foods for Ezra about 2 months ago and now that his pincer grasp is more developed he is quite good at getting most of the food actually into his mouth.
The result of this is that he has increasingly become discontent with babyfood.
As far as feeding stages go, I have to admit the babyfood stage is probably my least favorite...and I am quite excited to move into the self-feeding stage. So, over the past few days I have been experimenting with phasing out the babyfood and just doing finger foods.
Bananas, peaches, oranges, quesadillas, cheerios, cheese, pizza, avocado, pasta, broccoli, scrambled eggs, pancakes, grapes, blueberries, mango, pineapple, black beans...He has yet to meet a food he doesn't like =)
Man, does he make a mess though!
