Re: Will my baby ever learn?????
Patience. Patience, patience, and more patience. Just keep offering the finger foods and the sippy cups, and don't be afraid to offer them before you take out the purees and spoon. Maybe if your LO is a little hungry, she'll be more apt to pick up a piece of nice-smelling food and put it into her mouth.
This is all totally normal for a baby who is less than a year old. A lot of babies are still pretty much exclusively breastfed until a year or even beyond. Breastmilk alone meets all their nutritional needs until a year or thereabouts.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
