My daughter, who is 15 months old, is sitting at the table drinking water from a cup. Not a sippy cup, an actual cup. I am so happy. She has had the dexterity for some time, but everytime she had the opportunity to hold the cup herself, overwhelmed at the power, splashed it all over by vigorously shaking the cup up and down. She has not used a bottle in over 7 months and has never used a sippy cup. We have been holding the cup for her. She can also drink from a straw, has for months. Very convenient skill that she developed one afternoon at IKEA. She talks well for her age and knows the color green and now can distinguish dogs from bears. She also ate her lemon ice with a spoon all by herself tonight.
I know all these things seem mundane, but I am bursting with pride.
How are the other doper toddlers?
