In the awesome news department...Julianne drank - DRANK!!!! - 30ml of whole milk today!! That's 1 ounce! She took each sip totally on her own. Normally, I have to pour it in her mouth or squeeze the sides of the cup to get it to pour into her mouth. This time I told her to take a sip after each bite of baby food and she did! Now, she didn't really express any enjoyment in drinking the milk. She was pretty much ready to be done after like 10 sips, but she continued and drank 30ml from her little yellow cup in her own little hands. Wonderful. :) I tried it again this evening, however, and she wasn't really into it at all...hit or miss I guess. It was still a great accomplishment for her and I'm very thankful for it!
I have these two basket-like floor cushions that I keep stacked up with a pillow on top of them. They look like this:
And yes, they often have a cute, bow-headed little girl climbing on them. I am loving that Julianne feels free to take the pillow off, take the floor cushions apart and make herself comfortable. Like this:
