On Lumps

When a baby is tiny, its fingers don't have the surface area to be able to accurately make judgements about objects. Hence putting everything in their mouth - the biggest concentration of nerve endings in their body at that time.

Given this, why is it that thirteen-month-old Daisy now feels the need to take any remotely solid bits in her food out of her mouth and feel them with her fingers?
