After more than half a year since I started drinking from a cup (with help), I am happy to announce that I can handle the process myself. Here is a tutorial I put together, including pictures (taken by mommy) and important warnings:
This is not exactly news because I eat yogurt for quite a while. I also eat yogurt by myself for a while, so that’s not news either. There’s really no news, it’s just that daddy took some pictures while I was eating yogurt by myself. I don’t think the pictures are particularly funny – is there anything funny about a baby getting messy while eating? To me that’s perfectly normal. But my daddy thinks they are funny. I bet that cleaning up afterwards was not that funny.
After I ate my (1/4) apple with (1/2) banana, my mommy offered me water from a cup. I usually drink only milk from my bottle, so this was definitely a new experience. I am not very efficient at drinking from a cup for several reasons: (1) some water runs around my mouth because I cannot control its level, (2) I would rather lick/chew the cup, (3) I must check what’s inside the cup, (4) it’s much more fun playing with the cup than drinking water from it.
