Ethan has yet to drink out of a bottle or sippy cup. He went straight from the boob to a straw! He loves to drink out of a straw. When he is thirsty, sees me getting water from the fridge, or sees a straw he starts making a really cute slurping sound. He not only drinks from a straw but, he also likes to drink straight from my cup. At dinner I usually get him a small kids cup that I either put a straw in or help him drink from.
Tonight, he took his cup... by himself.... and took a drink!!! Yep, one drink. Not too much. Not spilling over. No chocking or gagging. Nope, just a perfect drink.
Then, he put the cup down, like we do, got his breath, finished his drink, and....
went back for another drink!!!! Our little guy can drink from a cup ALL BY HIMSELF!!! I'm totally impressed!!!!
