I have a very independent child. She likes to do things on her own. She'd rather crawl and cruise the furniture than have you hold her. She hates when you help her hold her bottle or sippy cup. And lately, she has decided that she will not let you feed her any food unless she can do it herself. I had the brilliant idea to put her snacks in a bowl for her, and set it on the floor by where she plays. She loves this idea. She also loves dumping everything out of the bowl and then eating her snacks:) She always looks so proud and claps a few times for herself. If I even think of picking them up she screams. It makes me laugh.
I love my baby girl nad her independent ways.
