At first she understood that part of it goes in your mouth, but I think she was confused as to which part.
Here, Mom. Show me again!
Like this, baby girl.
Now she's got it.
She thought about it for a minute . . .
(what? I haven't told you Ali's newest trick? It's the pondering look. She puts a finger to her mouth and everything!)
While she thought, I got in a sneak shot of her feet.
How adorable is she that she eats with her feet crossed loosely at the ankles??
She abandoned her fork for her trusty-yet-dainty fingers.
But then! She spied the *real* fork. The BIG fork. She was hooked.
Nope, not that end.
Now she's getting it . . .
Yay! The fork went from the food to her mouth! It's true there wasn't actually any food on it, but that's fork-usage 2.0. She's got the first concept down!
How amazing is it to watch a child learn something new??? Love it!!
