Sippy Skippy!

I am skipping because Naomi drank a good 3 ounces or so from her sippy cup today!  I have been trying every day - 2-3 times a day to get her to drink and maybe 3 or 4 times total she has taken a few sips and then let out an angry cry and pushed it away. 

I started to get discouraged because - I mean - she wouldn't even TRY!  And I don't want to do a cold turkey, take bottle away in a few months.  I really wanted it to be a gradual thing.  But she wasn't showing any progress.  But today she chugged water.  I almost cried.

And she's taken her first steps and wants to hold our hands and walk EVERYWHERE.  All the time.  She'll let go of something and take 2 or 3 steps, but get's scared when she falls.  So she's not too brave yet. 

Walking, drinking from a sippy and a cup.  What's next?  Soccer?  She's going to be a toddler.  Time flies.

So cute! Yeah! Savvy wouldn't drink form a normal sippy cup till we got her a sippy cup with a straw or spout. she loves it! She still won't drink milk from it just water and or juice at breakfast/lunch/dinner !! Savvys 16 months old so don't feel like Nae is super old and is still using a bottle!
