We have Life Factory glass sippy cups for the kids, and since they are heavy and an odd shape, Brayden has always had trouble holding them by himself. I am proud to say, he has finally mastered holding his sippy cup. He is growing up! Now, all he needs to do is walk!! I always said I was glad he isn't walking and getting into everything imaginable, but I am ready. He knows how to walk, he just chooses not to. Oh well... I know he'll walk some day soon!
Oh, a Leah update. We have been very consistent with her lately - probably excessively consistent - but it seems to be working. Her whining and crying is easily down 80%, and the other 20% is probably better than most 2 year olds out there. Once I realized she was playing us, I decided to not give in so easily. Yep, Leah knew exactly what she was doing. I caught her doing it. She was whining and crying about something, and I just smirked at her, and she started giggling... right then and there! It was like pure sadness one second, then complete joy the next. Stinker! Now that I am reading into her game, she has been much happier and so much more pleasant to be around.
Brayden is cutting more teeth. He now has 8 with numbers 9 and 10 showing, just not through the gums yet. He was doing so well about going down for bed. I always lay on the mattress with him and nurse him until he smiles and doesn't want anymore. Then, I pick him up and he snuggles with me for a good minute or two, I kiss him goodnight and he giggles. I then put his paci in his mouth and give him his Issie and he smiles and waves bye bye. Lately though, he has been crying the second I go to put him in his crib. He has never done this before. I am so sad, I hate hearing him cry, and the only thing I can think of is his teeth are hurting him. Poor buddy. Teething can be so hard.
