Matilda is getting very good at drinking her water, all of a sudden. I hadn't been able to figure out why on her daily "report cards" from daycare, there would be comments that M had drunk water. One day I popped in at unch time, as M had also been rather picky about her lunch eating ... I noticed that the carers put her cup on the highchair table while she's eating. So I've been doing that since, and M actually drinks a fair bit of water, but only on her terms. ;) And sometimes the cup is really a missile to be propelled to the far corners of the room (ok, I'm exaggerating), but generally, she's pretty good about drinking it.
For people who've been to our house recently, you can now slump on the couch and still see the TV. The piles of mags have been moved ... now that M is pulling herself up onto the coffee table, she's been enjoying pulling everything off it ... so we've minimised what's there, and are trying to help her exercise restraint ... let's see how that works.
