*successfully* use a spoon/fork to eat? when i say successful, i mean actually getting the food into his/her mouth, holding the spoon right and getting the food onto the spoon/fork without flinging it everywhere? when they could eat cereal with milk out of a bowl?
she didn't talk a lot til 23 months, she just turned 2 a few weeks ago. she was evaluated by a speech therapist and everything looked good, and sure enough she started chatting it up a few days before the evaluation. now she is a great talker. she knows her numbers 1-10, colors, she knows the words to some songs and her alphabet. but now im wondering if she's delayed in motor skills.
she tries to use the spoon. ive been letting her try since she was 18 months. she points the mouth of the spoon facing her and the handle pointing downward, instead of aiming the mouth directly into her mouth. the only thing she can eat right is mashed potatoes with a thick consistency. she also cannot drink out of a regular cup. has to be a straw or a sippy. and everytime someone goes potty, she'll follow and sit on her potty fully clothed, but bare butt forget about it. she has yet to have any success on the potty yet. but i know she still has room for growth with this.
im just a little concerned.. my oldest was definitely eating cereal out of a bowl with milk, oatmeal, drinking out of a cup, by her 2nd birthday. i know each child is different but im pretty sure she should be doing these things by now. is yours? when did they have this stuff down?
