Yesterday I gave Sam a partially peeled banana. He's 16-months old and I thought he could handle it.
Step 1: Sam tries to bite the end of the banana. "No, no, Sam." I say gently.
Step 2: Sam flips the banana over and takes a bite out of the peel. "No, no, Sam." I say gently.
Step 3: Sam takes a small bite of the actual banana. "Yea!" I say and begin to clap for Sam.
Step 4: Sam grins and begins clapping as well, demolishing the banana in the process.
