  • The oldest was 4 years. (yep, not a typo. He had a severe fine motor skill delay)

    The second was closer to 15 months (moderate delay)

    The third has done it since he could sit up, I think! LOL Seriously, he was picking up small toys at 4 months with a pincer grasp. Perfected it around 6 months.

  • About 8 months....maybe a bit before. It's when i started feeding her chopped up food and puffs. She started grabbing before but not with the pincer grasp.
