The Sippy Solution

Gabriella is more than happy to drink her milk from a cup. But, she just wasn't getting the hang of tilting the cup and her head back to drink. So, I got some sippies with straws. Bingo! She sucks down her milk with that.

Oooooh mommy, thank you for the yummy milk!



Here is one for Titi Ady. She sent this dress from Greece for Gabriella and now it fits her perfectly. She's sitting on her new learning chair she got for her birthday from her little buddy Connor. Now, we just have to teach her not to do a nosedive to get out of it! I have it on the nice soft mat in the playroom now.



Further proof that yes, Bing is actually a person. Hanging with Grandma Maty.

Gabriella learned to point and now she points at everything and everyone.

Alex's friend has the chair (we got it for him for his birthday) and Alex LOVES it. I'm waiting to see if Zach is tired of it soon so Alex can "borrow" it or if I'm going to go out and get it for him for his birthday!!

You are so lucky about the sippy cup and milk. We have that sippy cup (we have every sippy cup ever made). She likes it for water, but not milk.

Love that chair. Looks like Garbriella is having tons of fun.

And of course our cats are "people." We always refer to them as our furry children or four legged kids.

Crystal said...

Princess D said...

Oh what a little cutey she is! Hey, do those cups leak or spill if they tip over? I figure they might with the straw. Those would be perfect for Dani but she throws her cups. I know not very lady like. We are working on it! LOL

Hi Alleen~

I have been following your blog for some time after I came across it thru MichelleSmiles. Your daughter is gorgeous and coincidently 1 day older than our son Spenser (born 3/15/06). We are still waiting to bring Spenser home but were fortunate enough to celebrate his 1st birthday with him in Guatemala City.

All the best, Caryn
