How do you work these things?

Laurel is trying to figure out how those wiggly things on her hands work. She sees mom, dad, even big brother pick things up with them, so she should be able to do it also. Question is, how do you make them do what you want?





I see crackers. I want those crackers. I can almost reach them!






I know I picked them up, why aren't they in my mouth?

(I can't help but laugh when the crackers are stuck to her palm. She opens and closes it, but the cracker just won't fall off.)







Oh, bother! If I can't eat the crackers, then I'll have to settle for the tray. Sigh.

What a beautiful little girl. Soon enough she will be working those fingers like a champ. Hide the pens and magic markers.

Hi! Laurel was toothless when these pictures were taken. These so called crackers are by Gerber and called Sweet Potato Puffs. They dissolve in the mouth, so teeth aren't necessary. I ate some to make sure (don't want a choking baby), and found they dissolve very quickly. They come in other flavors too.

Has she gotten them stuck to her nose yet? You must post pics when that happens (and it can be induced by a parent), it is very funny!

Oh, too adorable! I can't wait until my four-month old starts doing this! As of lately she gets really fixated on something and tries so hard to get her arms in the direction she wants them to go. Poor thing! She ends up pulling her hands into her mouth while still fixated on whatever it was she wanted in the first place!

That girl needs a booster seat for her high chair! Hard to grab stuff when it's at nose level, poor sweet baby.

Those are the cutest pictures - but how could they not be, given the subject!
