"Anything you can hold, I can hold better."

Remember that song, "Anything you can do, I can do better?" Well, Little Elvis has a different version running through his mind right now.

He grabs at EVERYTHING! I can't drink water while breastfeeding him anymore. He pulls away so he can grab at the cup and suck on the bottom of it. I've completely given up on drinking warm tea while feeding. (I read somewhere that chamomile stimulates breastmilk production.)

He thinks that anything Bob and I hold is fair game and would be better off in his little hands. His favorites are drinks, the remote control and my cell phone (he's hung up on my dad and Bob twice!)

The good news is that we just came back from his 6 month appointment -- all is well -- and the doctor said we could start giving him juice or water in a sippy cup. That way he gets his own drink.

I will definitely have to get the camcorder out for this accomplishment!
