Ari will be 4 months soon.. lately she seems super interested in food.. especially bananas. anywho... I was eating the ice cream and I was holding her. she was watching me very intently. I put the spoon toward her mouth and she opened up and started to go forward and wanted it! I didn't let her try it of course.

I know they say wait till at least 6 months.. but is it typical for a baby to do that?

Yep. My three month old opens his mouth when you put stuff near it.
Most recently is was the ginger snap my two year old was trying to feed him.

Yes, it is normal. Babies are curious about what we're doing, not necessarily the food. I gave my son an empty cup and a spoon and he was happy with that. I tested his tongue thrust reflex with some pumped milk on a spoon. He still had the tongue thrust, so he wasn't ready for anything else, but he got to "eat" something.

No. I wait until after they turn six months and can feed themselves. That's what I did with my older two and that's what I'll do with him. My two year old has almost fed him quite a few times, but he's only licked things before I moved the older one away.

I love our dairy free banana ice cream!
Very normal behavior :) they also love keys, cell phones, knives, etc.

I literally made banana and strawberry breast milk ice cream for my 8 months old. I have an automatic ice cream maker, added a banana, 2 strawberries and 8 oz breast milk. Both my DD's loved it! The older will be 3 next month and didn't even noticed it was made with BM! LOL!!!
