Chandler Grace Feeds Herself!

I can do it myself, Mama!
Looks like a pro!
The pout I got when I tried to help
See, it's just better when I do it!
Big bite
There goes my baby...
Alright, I think we're done here

Chandler Grace declared independence from her mother on Friday, October 24th, at lunch. At least from being fed. I got a text message and got up to grab my cell phone. When I returned, CG had grabbed the applesauce cup and spork (all of the spoons were in the dishwasher) and began feeding herself!

Now, she is 16 months old, so should be totally capable of this task. So, why has she just now started feeding herself? I guess her mother, not having a new baby to tend to, has just kept happily shoveling food into her mouth! It hasn't even hit me to "let her" do it or that she needed to do it herself.

So, baby girl took matters into her own hands. And I have to say, did a fabulous job considering it was applesauce. With a spork.

Okay, that is just too funny! The things we do for our kids without giving it a second thought...until the day when they show us they can do it themselves! What a hoot that it was applesauce with a spork. I absolutely love the pouty picture. She is a doll. Her brown polka dotted pjs are adorable, too! I love the way the pics just tell the whole story. I feel like I got to witness the independent moment with you. ;)
