Oh what a mess...
Ayanna’s independent streak is growing strong. And she’s fervently expressing her desire to be independent at the table.
In it goes...
These days we’ve begun breaking up meal times to support and encourage her independence. This means we spend some time feeding her and then, Ayanna happily feeds herself some finger food or light snacks. This is to ensure she gets enough to eat. She loves dipping her fingers into her bowl and makes a mess while trying to feed herself. But it’s all worth it. We spread some newspaper on the floor beneath the high-chair to make cleanup easier for mummy.
