I had read in a couple of different places that if your baby tries to grab the spoon while you're feeding her, you should just give her a spoon of her own to hold. She'll be totally adorable and bang it on the highchair tray while you happily spoon the rest of her food into her mouth (which will open just like a baby bird's in eager anticipation of the nutrition you are providing).
Maybe I should have had Sonia read those same works of fiction....
Daddy-Daughter standoff (this was the first, but I'm sure it will certainly not be the last!):
At this point, Andrew declared FAIL on the extra spoon idea, did a little mid-feeding cleanup, and continued to try nourishing our daughter. Sonia had other ideas.
Oh well.... She's OBVIOUSLY not starving!!!!
