Milestone!

It may not seem like a big deal, but I'm just so proud.

Kevin has been working on the sippy cup and has actually gotten much better at it, but today I reintroduced him to the kind with a straw. I tried it before and he had no clue whatsoever. Today, he picked that puppy right up and started sucking away like he's been doing it all along. He was so pleased with himself that he just kept doing it over and over again. When he tipped the cup over, he meticulously set it upright again. The timing couldn't be better. I was hoping he could use something with regularity by the time we left for the trip. Since the straw is supposed to be more beneficial developmentally, that's a bonus.

Oh that's great. And as an SLP I can agree that it is a good thing developmentally. We tried one a month or so ago and got nowhere. I've also been meaning to try again soon....

Wow, that's great! I still can't get John to use one of those types. Way to go Kevin!!!

Tam, it IS a big deal. When Gia started drinking out of a straw, Zo would go around bragging about to everyone who would listen...seriously.

I'm glad you figured out an easier way to eat your peanut butter cups, too. Way to go:) I know how important things that involve chocolate are!!!
