The Many Ways Your Baby Uses His Hands

Still, after a year of practice, there are a number of new things he can do. His pincer grasp is improving every day, allowing him to pinch, squeeze, grasp, hold, and throw with more control and purpose.

With his self-feeding abilities also improving, he'll soon be mastering the use of spoons and cups during mealtime.
