Sultanas

Friday, August 25th, 2006

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we have a pincer grip. (Applause, applause…)

Don't know where it came from, but as of yesterday all Babybear does is stick her index finger into things (including her water glass, where any Stinkerbell-inspired progress is now going backwards) and catch things with her thumb. Oooh so very cute.

I've been looking for some time for an addition to our 'always in the buggy bag' staples of rice cakes and water, and now we have 'em. I had thought it best to avoid sultanas because of the choking hazard thing but now I can adopt the 'if she can pick it up, she can eat it' approach with a fearless heart. What I do is squash the sultanas as I give them to her so that as least I know that the skin is broken. It's heart-meltingly sweet to see her laboriously picking them up from her highchair tray, and heart-soaringly joyful to be able to hand her a sultana and head off a gurning episode in Sainsbury's. Hu-zzah.
