Drinking from an open cup!!!!!!
Reply with quote

I have been really lazy about working with Kennedy on drinking from an open cup. But today the kids had milk and cookies and I decided tha she would get a big girl cup too. OMG, she drank right out of it with barely a mess and when she was done, she wuld say "more" and hand me the cup. I couldn't believe it!
Also the other day she grabbed one of the kids juice bags. I have also been very lazy about straw drinking, I know, Bad Mommy! She drank right from the straw immediately. And then clapped and "yeahed" for herself. My girl is growing up! Sigh.....

WTG Kennedy - sounds like you are teaching yourself all sorts of things since Mommy has been such a slacker! Wink

I'm with ya, Beth! We did the straw thing early on, but I have been very lazy about cup drinking, too! I've started trying a little more lately, but she hasn't enthusiastically taken to it the way it sounds Kennedy has! Congrats, big girl!!
