Another Tasty Milestone

Ok......so my Shawn is incredibly independent. He is most definitely a "doer" and "mover", in Down syndrome terms. But one area where Shawn has really showed no desire is to give himself a bottle, or to learn to drink from a sippy cup. In fact, Shawn is 22 months old, and we still give him every bottle....and he does not assist. Obviously, we have to do this because he also will not drink from a sippy cup....and the boy has got to drink.

Finally, yesterday.......with a cup that does not frustrate him.......he has embraced the sippy cup....and is now enjoying sweet yummy apple juice.....independently. I'm not sure he'll be as excited about it with milk or pediasure.....but....baby steps.

It's sooooooooooooo cute. WATCH.

Yeah, Shawn! So cute.

You know, I think I was in your neck of the woods this weekend. Bill and I were in Murfreesboro for a work conference. We went to the Grand Ole Opry, which was neat.

I wished I could look you up. It was beautiful there.

I can NEVER not leave a comment when it comes to your babies!!! I LOVE THIS VIDEO!! He looks like he's been doing it all his life-event the part where the cup is turned around, it's so cute!!!!!!!!!!!! Gosh, I don't want him to grow up! It's so nice to have "blogging" so he'll be able to see what he was like as a baby!!!
