The Pincer Grasp

I love watching my Rabbit eat blueberries.

She reaches for them with her index finger:

Then she moves in for the kill:

Almost got it! Look at those darling little fingers!

The pincer grasp is a very important milestone in the development of hand coordination. They usually get it at about nine months, so the Rabbit has been doing it for awhile. And blueberries are the perfect thing to practice it on.

After all, they are her favorite food.

What an adorable little one year old! Thanks for the detailed pictures for a grandma who doesn't get to see her very often! Love
