I didn’t think he was old enough to drink with a sippy cup. My sister bought him one and I was certain he wouldn’t get the gist of it. As soon as she gave it to him it went straight in his mouth like he’d been doing it forever. He sucked and chewed that thing half to death. I was so proud but a little sad that he was getting so much older and no longer my itty bitty baby.
Sometimes it takes another person to share their experience or for me to witness another baby of a similar age doing something I thought was too advanced. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and forget that he’s really clever and is more capable than I give him credit for. Like solids. Like rolling. Like sitting. Yep, the longest he can sit unaided is 15 seconds.
I was told that your child will surprise you everyday… and they were right.
