The Sippy Cup

Jonah's first attempt with a sippy cup.  December 31, 2006
One of the hardest transitions we made with Jonah was the sippy cup.  He hated it.  He never mastered it until we did the bottle boot camp when he was one year and three days old.  We forced him to like it.  It was a tough few days when we went cold turkey with the bottle.  But, we persevered and he finally got it. 

Micah, on the other hand, likes all things associated with food.  We handed him a sippy cup for the first time a couple of weeks ago and he put it right to his mouth and drank every ounce in the cup.  Apparently this transition will not be a difficult one for him like it was his big brother.  I attribute some of that to us knowing which cup to try first as opposed to trying 4-6 different ones before we found one that worked with Jonah.  Either way, I'm just glad this isn't a battle we are fighting this time.

that's the same cup we started with Cruz and he took right to it. It's been a harder transition from a stage 1 to a stage 2 than it was getting started. I can't believe how fast Micah is growing. He's a cutie!
