The First Straw

It started last night at the wedding reception for Matt Vratel and his lovely bride, Lorelia. Uncle Tim started feeding her water by capturing it in a straw and letting it run out into her mouth. Mom (aka Grandma) helped it along tonight at the restraunt (El Jarritos in Katy, Texas) by putting the straw in Magda's mouth, but not releasing the suction created by her finger for a brief instant. And finally, I was feeding her water with the straw and noticed that she was sucking on the end before I was removing my finger. So I gave her the straw while it was sitting in a glass of water. She tongued it for a half a minute before she pulled water into her mouth, and by the end of the night she was using the straw with gusto. Isn't she brilliant?!
