Farrah starting using a spoon maybe 2 months ago? (meaning: this video is dated now) So she was about 11 months here? I have no idea if that is late for using her own spoon, but it kinda seems like it. I had NEVER offered it to her! I realized that is what she was whining for and wanting. Once I gave it to her, she went to town. Kinda like, "Mom, seriously, I can do this." The bowl comes out at least twice a day now - yogurt, grits, oatmeal, applesauce, etc... along with the bib!
