I would just assume she's not ready

I mean, of course she watches you eat - doesn't she watch everything you do? And of course she likes to chew on spoons - doesn't she chew on everything?

I wouldn't push it. There's no rule that says she HAS to be eating solids by a year old.

I would keep offering, but not worry. Put food on her tray at mealtimes and if she tries it - awesome! And if she's just enjoying social time - awesome.

Some mommas delay solids to a year deliberately. I think the important thing is to follow your child's lead and she doesn't sound interested yet.
