Left or Right handed?

Is it obvious yet whether you will have a lefty or a righty? Lyla seems to favor her left and a LOT and generally holds her fork/spoon in her left hand. When she draws she alternates, but I've noticed for a long time now the she tends to use her left hand. I don't know if that really means anything at this age, but I was wondering if your LO's were doing this too.

Doesn't matter where I place his fork or spoon, Aiden will move it to the right side and will only use his right hand to handle them. Though when eating with his fingers both hands are fair game. Wink When coloring he mostly uses his right hand, but will use his left hand some.

Ronin is still ambidextorous, however my Nan a swears he will be a lefty because she sees him use his left hand a bit. Then again my Nan a is also entering the later stages of alzeiheimers so she may not really be noticing it as much as it sounds

Mostly Right handed. Especially when she eats or colors. When throwing balls and playing with toys she'll use her left sometimes.

Lainey used to favor her left quite a bit, but now she has switched to preferring her right. My mom is a lefty & hates it, so she is relieved.
I still don't think it is quite 100% decided at this age, but we are probably starting to see the trends in handedness preference that will stick with them.

Lucas uses a lot of both hands, but I think that he does seem to eat and do other things more with his right. I'm guessing he will be right-handed, and I know his sister is. I forget at what age I was sure with her.

I'd say Teagan prefers her right when using utensils and when smashing things.

ROFL

Evan still uses both hands. When I think he may be favoring one, he switches it up.

When Isabelle was little, I swore she was left handed because she would pick up food with her left hand. However now she uses her right hand when she eats with utensils so I think she may be right handed after all.
