Hi I can tell this bothers you a lot. I can only tell you about my experience. My daughter is 21 month old now and I started giving baby food when she was about 6 month. From the start I homemade all her baby food, believe me is a money saver and you can make the food at the consistency that you want. I would steam the fruits (peaches, plums, pears, apples, etc.) and I boil the vegetables (pumpkin, potatoes, squash, etc.) and with a fork I would smash the vegetable until I got the consistency I wanted. If I wanted it softer I would use little of the water that I use to boil the vegetable to make it softer. At least with mine daughter at the beginning I had to start her slowly, because if it was too chunky she would not like it. So I try and if I saw that she wasn’t going to eat it I would smash it a little more. Also, start giving your baby little pieces of your own food, so he can start experimenting and getting the hang of it. Now she eats everything.
About the sippy cup, my daughter was the same. She would drink her water and other liquids from the cup, but not the milk. Now she drinks it from the cup, but if she asks for a “bibi” her bottle, she wants it in her bottle.

Hi Diane, what a coincidence, I am from Puerto Rico, but I lived in Tallahassee for about 5 years. That is a great town to bring up a kid. I am glad to know that this is a normal behavior, but me to waiting for the day that she can play alone for a while. We decided to wait until she is about 3 years to put her at the Montessori School, but is going to be challenging. Patience is not my forte, but I have been able to acquire this skill with Paola. Even thou, I don't have patience for a lot of other things.
