Why Bibs Were Invented

I have a little friend who has been telling me that he can feed himself for months now.  I finally tied the bib on and handed him the spoon!  This is the clean part of the meal:

And here my little 14-month old decides to be more efficient:

And, of course, Kaia's yogurt video:

So cute...I know feeding little ones should give us hazard pay. New follower from MBC.

It's always hard to let them start doing things themselves. Especially when it involves something like food, which you know will get EVERYWHERE! :o) I share your pain. You want them to be independent, but just not so messy while they get there. :o)

Ciao Mama, I love the idea of hazard pay! lol!

Aliesha, that's exactly it! Can't they be independent without making a huge mess? Of course, it wouldn't be nearly as cute, then!

You are brave LOL. I gave Julianna a spoon a few times but she doesn't quite get it yet. LOL. She loves to feed herself finger foods... If we give her a spoon, she tried to feed grandma the other day!

Thanks for stopping by, Ellie!

lol, Skye! I think Harry likes spoons and toothbrushes as much as any toy! He tries to give me bites sometimes too, and part of me thinks it's so sweet! (the other part of me wonders how to say "No thanks!" without hurting his little feelings...:))
