We were at our WIC recert today, and the nurse was asking me all the usual questions (my favorite-does she regularly eat paint chips or laundry detergent? to which my answer is only if she behaves in public <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Really what kind of question is that?) Back on topic, they were telling me about how I needed to start her on cereal, then veggies, then fruit, and then at 9 monthes I should start giving her finger foods (but only between meals of baby food ??) I told her she already eats finger foods, and we are not doing cereal. She probably thinks I have some sort of child prodigy with pincher grasp and getting every single bit in her mouth <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm sure she'd cringe if she came to my house. Esp. if she knew DD only gets these finger foods every other day or so at dinner. Usually she just gets spoons to play with and a cup of water.
