Yes, yes I joined the bandwagon and bought the sippy cup that EVERY child seems to have. I was too curious what the hype was all about.
Nora hasn’t seemed to have an issue with any of the cups we have bought so far, but I like to change it up sometimes. I can’t even tell you which one is her favorite as she dives for the cup and drinks water like she’s been in the desert for the past week, every single time.
We’ve had the Weighted Straw Cup I would say for about a month now and I’m still not sure whether I like it or not. Don’t get me wrong, Nora loves it! But because it’s easy and that’s where I’m conflicted.
I love the fact that when she’s using the 360 cup, it’s as if she’s learning how to use a real cup. Or with her other straw cup, she knows she has to keep it down or she won’t get anything. So I feel as if the weighted straw isn’t “teaching” her anything because she can drink from it no matter how she holds it. I may be over-thinking things over here but that’s how I’m feeling for the moment. The way she sticks her tongue out when she drinks from it is the cutest thing though!
On another note, I’m a horrible mother because I missed Nora’s 10 months this week😭. We had such an insanely busy week, I only realized at the end of the day and still haven’t had the chance to take any pictures. I’m going to try this weekend but I’m not very hopeful as it’s going to be very busy too!
At 10 months miss Nora Grace has 6 and 1/2 teeth (4 on the top and 2 1/2 on the bottom,) has said dada appropriately once, says “up”, what sounds like “hey” and “yeeeaahhhh.” She now does “bravo” and claps her hands, has started waving and giving high fives. She does a “cheese” face when prompt to, which consists of her scrunching up her little nose and attempting to smile and it’s one of my favourite things ever! We not only started crawling this month but we have now started to pull up on things and walk along them! So many new and exciting things!
We spend the days exploring the house and putting everything we can possible in our mouth. Nora has grown a huge dislike to the word “no.” I don’t even have to raise my voice and she yells and gets upset. Her temper is definitely getting worse but we are starting to better understand consequences. When she stops doing what I tell her not to do, she sits there and claps. It’s the cutest thing! I’m starting to love this age the more she starts to understand and grow into an actual tiny, little human.
(Her “cheese” faces make her look angry lol)
What age is your favorite?
