I win!!!!

It took 6 weeks and some creative tips, but I finally won. Emerson is FINALLY drinking milk out of a sippy cup. She is still getting a bottle at night, oh well. Sue me.

Amanda should win the award for the best idea. We finally gave in and tried her suggestion of chocolate syrup. Now before you get all concerned, it was literally a tiny bit- maybe a couple drops. It did not even turn the milk brown. Emy liked it though and after 3 days of that, we stopped the syrup and mommy wins!!! She even does her dramatic MMMMMMM after she takes a sip. It is hillarious.

Now, on to trying to get her to walk before she is two.
Guess what's in the cup?!?!?!?!

Yea! Great news! Glad the chocolate worked! My doctor suggested flavoring with choco. or strawberry if he didn't go for the plain, so I'm glad it worked for Emy and that you even got it back to plain!! Way to go mom!

I said something helpful? Yessssssss! I'm so glad it worked. You will have to remind me of some things when I'm going through all of this with the new baby.
