*****************************************************ETA— For my visually impaired readers, these are two pictures of Nik drinking a yogurt smoothie through a straw all by himself. This is big, big stuff.

Whoo hoo! That’s awesome! Good for you, Nik.
Woohoo! Yum! Go Nik!
Oh my gosh. Nik is not just “drinking” that smoothie – he’s totally digging it!
Yay Nik!!! This is so great. His poor little nose, though! And did I say HOW BIG he looks?!?!
Wow! I understand being excited about a straw. I can’t wait for sipppy-cup free days. Go, Nik!
Wow that huge!! C still cant do this!Way to go Nik!
GO NIK!!!! WOO-HOO!!!!
Hooray for Nik!!!! It took a lot of work for Henry to figure out a straw! You guys can get milkshakes every night now!!!
That’s wonderful news – what a big milestone!!!! :) :)
Yeah! Be careful of those straws though. One of mine came to associate straws with ‘drinks.’ Admittedly he only ‘drinks’ water and milk, but now both have to be drunk with a straw [and no hands]
We’re be ‘practicing’ ‘hot chocolate’ due to peer pressure, which I’m only too happy to submit to. However, asking for a straw with your hot chocolate does produce a certain amount of…..confusion.
Still at least he has the lip closure mastered now!Cheers
The damaged nose lends a particular elan to these photos. Rock on Nik!
big stuff indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!
give him a big hug for me!
Awesome! That is a difficult skill to master. I am so happy for Nik!
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. I do appreciate your ongoing support.
I hope the med weaning continues to show good results. M’s rash is all gone now that we are back to the peach pill.
What a great moment!! Way to go!
He looks so serious about in the second piecture! Way to go, Nik!
Woo Hoo! Poor little nose…
I’m so excited to read about his latest accomplishment!
