Tuesday, November 17
{321/365} I can't remember when it happened, but I do know where Emily started using a straw for the first time. For quite a while Grandma Eileen was on a mission to teach her to drink from a straw until one day while eating lunch at the happened! For Liam it's been a challenge mainly because he is learning to use a whistle at the same time (apparently all of this "oral" stuff is preparing him for speech therapy). We have cups with straws, sippy cups with straws and even a special teddy bear cup with a straw. Each day we try and each day we fail...until today. Today Liam grabbed his teddy bear and sipped his water like a champ! Unbelievably, he grabbed his "slide" whistle and blew into that too...all on the same day. We are getting there! Way to go Liam!!
