Well- no OT for us for the next several weeks. Liam's OT got picked on a jury so she will be off duty for a while. That's ok. I got Liam drinking from a sippy cup yesterday all by myself!! I had tried once before and he wasn't much into it at all so I never tried again. I don't know what possessed me to try it again yesterday but I put water in it and let it drip into his mouth without the valve in it so he wouldn't have to suck. When the water started dripping in he started sucking so I quickly put the valve in and he took several sucks of water. I was so excited! I mean, I was literally grinning from ear to ear because I had just talked to OT about how hard she thought it was going to be for Liam to learn to drink from a cup and he just up and does it! He never ceases to amaze and surprise me.
