Our second attempt at feeding Lucy solid foods was slightly more successful. We put the dogs outside and put a few pieces of banana on her tray. Most of the banana ended up on the floor, but some of it actually made it into her mouth. I think she likes the taste; she kept reaching for more. She has a little trouble picking up the slippery pieces, though. I think she'll get better with more practice.
In case you're wondering why we're not just spoon-feeding her, we're trying out Baby-led Weaning. We're trying one food at a time, letting her get comfortable with the taste and texture with one food before moving on to something else. So far, we've just introduced bananas, but I think we'll try carrots or peas next :) We'll see how Lucy feels about veggies.
