[1Y8M] Self Feeding


Finally the time has come …. Angel refused us to feed her after a few trials letting her to do her own feeding and I think she is doing more then just great. I am also very impressed how well she could control her hand movements actually. Normally I would let her do some self feeding practices when I am serving her finger foods / snacks / meehoon (dry) started few weeks back and today, suddenly she wants to self feed on her porridge instead. Initially, I am not too sure about the idea of the watery porridge. But our stubborn girl is really determine to eat by her own self and would not open her mouth and starting to make a fuss and crying until me and hubby finally give in.




Me and hubby was standing beside her with a new pack of wet wipes and a kitchen roll, watching her every action anxiously and awaits the disasters which was going to happened ………………….. but well, well, well, I guess we really have overlooked the little girl’s ability this time. Not only she does not make a mess out of her porridge, on the contrary she sits on her high chair obediently and finished up all her porridge in a record breaking time LoL The amount of food spilt on her feeding bib and the table was also impressively very little. Most of the time, the spoon full of porridge that she scoop manages to make their way into her mouth without much spill out. Surprisingly, she will also use the spoon to clean-up the residual left around her mouth. Although her movements was not as smooth as us adults but I was really impressed by her progress I must say. Somehow feels that my little girl is really growing up now …………
I enjoy feeding Angel very much and I think I will miss those moments pretty soon :)

Wow, impressive. Seriously not many kids at this age can feed themselve without any mess right? Even my boy can feed himself quite well, but he will still purposely mess up everything. Which really drives me up the wall especially when we are dining outside.

Anyway, well done to ur lil girl! =)

Hi Yugene, I guess that’s the happy part of being a parent, watching our kids growing up.

Hi Serene, I am very impressed too …. Hahaha, first time mom is like that :)

Hi Doreen, Oh …. I thought bb Ryan has one already? I ordered mine from a online store – thebabyloft.com, it’s a bit pricey but I love the bib so much.

Hi Mummy Gwen, it’s still too early to tell, hope that she don’t play with her food in near future but I guess every kid does that :)

Hi Agnes, you are so right, they will feed themselves when the time comes :)

Hi JT, does she look like a big girl now?? Hhhmmm …. For me, she is always still my little baby leh :)

Hi Ling, I think I will miss that moments very soon too, that’s why thinking of the 2nd one now, hahahaha … just kidding :P

Hi Bonnie, oh … talking about dining outside, my girl will mess up everything else apart from her food. You will know that she was ‘there’ when you look at those ketchups, spoons, toothpicks, bowls, plates etc on the table, feels so sorry for the waitress who has to clean that all up after we left :(

Hi Olive, thanks for dropping by and thanks for your compliment too :)

Hi Rachel, thanks for your compliments.

Kristie said...

angel looks so cute! independent girl already ya... arent u proud of her mummy? :)

i also feel sad sometimes when i think jayden will also grow big one day and maybe dont want mummy to always hug and kiss him :)

so i really treasure the moments with him now, always cuddling him!

MommyAngel said...

Hi Kristie, me too have the same feeling like you. Sometimes I feel lucky that Angel is actually a child who loves being hug and being kisses, and she attached to us very much (sometimes she can be over clingy too but that’s how she is since birth) ..... and I try to enjoy those moments spending with her and treasure every chances I have in kissing and hugging her everyday :)
