So I don't really let Grace feed herself food that she has to eat with a spoon yet. Not because I don't want to. Mostly because I don't want to clean up the mess that she'll make (and she usually does) when she feeds herself. But the other night I let her try applesauce.
The spoon was more of a novelty really. I helped her a few times but then it was more fun to just go in with her hands.
She didn't make too much of a mess so I guess I'll let her do it more often! :)
