This past weekend, Lola accomplished a *very* big feat. I wasn't entirely sure she'd EVER be able to swing something like this, due to her tendency to gag/choke on even a slightly more free-flowing bottle nipple or chunks of soft food that isn't squished up tiny enough.
However, our sweet girl managed to DRINK FROM A WATER FOUNTAIN while we were up in Michigan! She didn't just do this once... she friggin' nailed it TWICE!
Drink #2, in action:
Seeing this makes me wonder how else I might be selling my girls short (pun intended!). Are there other experiences I am shafting them of because I assume they "cannot handle it?" I am going to make a conscious effort to give them more chances to succeed at even menial things such as this.
Seriously, I am BEAMING right now!
