Finger Food, Here We Come




Our 8 month old is starting to get the whole finger food process. I love to watch him try and grasp the Os with his chubby fingers, and concentrate so hard to get them in his mouth. Sometimes he is so proud with what he has accomplished, he smiles huge, and then the O falls right out of his mouth.

We've also tried banana, avocado, ripe pear, ripe mango, steamed carrots and peas, egg yolk and tiny cheese cubes. What a mess...but what fun too.

Any other ideas on good and easy finger foods at this age? I feel like I use the Os far too much since these are the easiest for him to grasp.

What a little cutie!

How about cubed sweet potatoes? Also, we used pasta -- either ravioli or tortellini. They sell bite sized pieces or cut regular ones in two.

Oh! And berries -- slightly squashed so they are easier to grab/not a choking hazard!

Gosh, I feel like I can barely remember that stage any more. Rachel always liked peas, slightly squasehd and both of them would any fruit if was ripe and caught into small enough pieces. Thanks for the picture!
