Yep, Annabelle has now reached that toddler milestone of sucking liquid through a straw!
What? You thought I meant something else? Not a chance. My kids are awesome!!
Annabelle has been attempting to drink from a straw for quite some time now, but just hadn't quite put it all together. We knew she was overdue to do so, being 18 months old now, but we weren't too concerned knowing that all kids reach milestones at their own pace.
You could tell she knew what the concept was, but just couldn't quite figure it out. It wasn't until we ordered a little flavored milk for her from one of our favorite local coffee houses that she had the incentive to draw the liquid out of the cup.
Since then, she has also took draws off of an apple granita from our local farmers market, which she also loved. I actually wrote about this same subject early in the life of this blog, when Lukas was a toddler himself. I called that post The First Straw.
This all just serves to prove that even the smallest milestones can be a lot of fun.
Happy Memorial Day weekend all. Be safe and enjoy yourselves.
