Donna - This post is for YOU!

We're making progress!
I haven't been pushing Addie to learn to drink from an open cup.
I have just been taking advantage of opportunities where she appeared interested.
I guess my approach is slowly paying off.
We see progress.
It's not perfect, but we are just as happy as can be that Addie can wrap those sweet little hands around a cup and bring it to her mouth to drink.
That is a huge milestone that we were prepared to never meet!
Can you imagine the amount of praise she is getting at each attempt?
She is so proud of herself!

Oh, Jennifer!!! Look at her!!! It's beautiful. And it's not just a baby/toddler plastic cup; it's a big girl glass. A glass glass. I am so very proud of her. There are tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat.... Thank you for sharing with me!
