This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Get your own drink sista

Maggie is a good baby.  She does, however, have a few quirks I'm not fond of.  
The biggest one is not taking a bottle or sippy cup. 
(Another is her teeth grinding!  She only has 5 teeth for heaven's sake!)
Before you suggest anything, I have tried it all.  water, formula, yogurt, breast milk in all kinds of nipples and sippy spouts.  I even went away overnight (30+ hrs) and she held out!  She was eating solid food so she wasn't starving.  So I finally took my friends advice and gave her a cup with a straw.  It took a few tries, but when I strapped it to her tray with some rubber bands so I could do the dishes while she played with the cup, she figured it out!

 The best part of the day wasn't Maggie's discovery though.
 It was Livie's comment that had me laughing so hard.
She said, "Great, now she looks like a guinea pig!"
