Robbie still rarely drinks anything. Most days we consider it a success if he lets us keep a cup on his tray. He's made huge strides in his eating, but liquids are still a great challenge.
However, occasionally we get a glimpse of hope. It's usually a hot day when he's been running around, though not always. But he'll just grab the cup and start to drink. It's never a lot. Sometimes it's a few sips, maybe an ounce. This particularly day, though, it was a few.
It was a very warm day and the kids were playing outside at daycare. Robbie came in and grabbed another boy's cup and started to drink. They gave him his own and he kept drinking. When David arrived to pick him up, he wouldn't give up the cup even to get into the car. When he got home, he kept going, eventually draining it. He wouldn't let go to have it refilled, so David just got him another.
Because of his lack of experience, he's not very good at it, and he certainly got more on himself than in him, but he was having a good time and no way would we stop him. I got home from work to find this waiting for me. It was a great day!

Robbie's friend Olivia turned 2 on June 26. She had an Elmo themed party, so we borrowed an Elmo outfit from a daycare friend and joined the fun.

Recently, a friend of mine had a new baby girl named Gabriella. We were excited to go meet her and couldn't wait to get a picture of the kids together. What is that they say about best laid plans?

For Father's Day this year, I
stole an idea from the Internet had the bright idea to make David a picture frame with some photos of Robbie in them, spelling out D-A-D.
This proved to be quite challenging. The letters are metal and kind of heavy. Robbie hated them. I spent a good hour chasing him around trying to get him and the letter in the same photo, but of course, by the time I convinced him to hold one and grabbed the camera, he'd moved on to other things.
Fortunately I got daycare involved later and they were very helpful. The final product:
