As any nursing mom can tell you, feeding a baby makes you SO THIRSTY. All. the. time. More often than not I'm balancing a baby on one arm while waiting impatiently at the fridge for the water dispenser to fill my giant plastic cup. I must also either dance, sway or bounce during this time or said baby gets even more impatient than thirsty mom.
Lately, as I've been drinking water during all our play-time activities, Stretchy has become very interested in what's going on in that cup. She stares, oogles, talks to and reaches for it almost every time I pick it up to take a sip.
A couple days ago, on my way to the fridge, with just a drop left, she grabbed the cup with both hands and brought it to her mouth. Does she do this with all her toys? Yes. Is a cup a pretty rattling toy? No. So I thought, "Hey, maybe she's really thirsty too."
I was right on:
Pretty soon she'll be sitting at the table with a full set of silverware...
