Brennan is (finally) drinking from a straw and I couldn't be happier! We had been working on it daily for months and I was starting to feel pretty discouraged. So, we took a short break from the straw ( I think I needed the break more than him!). Then, I gave him some soy milk in the honey bear on Friday and he drank from it all by himself. I wasn't that excited when it first happened because I thought it may be a fluke and the next day we'd be back to me squeezing the liquid into his mouth. But, he has been drinking from it by himself several times a day since then - even signing "drink" or pointing to the honey bear wanting to drink quite often. He gets pretty cranky now if someone else is having a drink and he's not. Quite a change from even a few days ago! He'll even hold the honey bear by himself, which is great! I'm so proud, happy, relieved.....hallelujah!
