i've always made a point to wipe the table after eating - even when it isn't particularly messy or sticky.
this way lucy always has the model of seeing what happens after we've eaten.
she usually asks for a rag and sometimes ends up wiping everything - including her chair (!)
lucy has used a spoon since the summer (about 15 mths) - and of course her hands.
for about a month now she has insisted on using a fork for just about everything - even her orange slices.
since clementines are in season, lucy has mastered peeling them, including the pith.
