Seeking advice ... again

So, I never updated you, but the transition from formula to milk went well. We eased the girls into it and we have been drinking full-on milk ever since.

But now, I come to you again, seeking advice.

We are attempting to transition from bottles to cups, and it's not going so well.

Well, let me re-phrase. It's not going so well for Grace. Claire has had no problems with the change, but Grace refuses to drink milk out of a cup. Figures, right?

We know she likes milk. She drinks it out of a bottle. And we know she likes things out of a cup and cold because that's how she drinks her water.

That's what we do know. What we don't know is how to convince the little booger to drink her milk out of a cup so we can get on with this whole growing up thing.

Thoughts? Ideas? Advice?

Elliott goes to a school that doesn't even believe in sippy cups... so he was completely cup trained at 18 months. He does pretty good without spilling, although we still have the occasional accident. We usually use sippy cups at home. If they won't even do a sippy, I'd honestly wait a couple months. They definitely don't want them on a bottle at 2 still, or even 18 months, but you've got some time until then, so I'd try it again in a little bit...
