She can suck!!
Cadence can finally suck!! I think that everyone in the restaurant knows that now considering how we all celebrated! We started using juice boxes and Capri Sun drinks a few months ago and when she would make a seal with her lips around the straw I'd give it a little squeeze (like a reward). She quickly caught on that with much insistence she could hold it herself and just squeeze the drink in, but we continued to work with it once a week or so. She always wants to drink whatever I or the girls have and gets so frustrated when it has a straw and she doesn't get anything.
I was giving her water the usual way (placing my finger over the top of the straw, trapping water, and letting it pour into her mouth) when she insisted that I put the lid and straw on the cup. Then I suddenly saw water in the straw and get all the way to her mouth! The girls and I hooped and hollered! We are so excited to reach this milestone. Now, on to talking, girlfriend!
