My DS was the same way. He refused all solids until he could pick them up himself.

I have never spoon fed my kids. I put food we are eating on their tray and let them feed themselves.

My daughter is learning slowly. She rather eat with her hand instead of a spoon and fork.

Maybe she is ready to start feeding herself :)

That's what I'm thinking . but were only giving her mashed potatoes right now because whenever we give her pieces of anything she spits it back out because she hasn't gotten the hang of swallowing solids yet.

 That's why I did table foods and just gave them their own silverware and let them make a mess ; ) It was worth it. My DD was skilled with a fork by 14 months and impressed my family, lol
