Gracious Living: Silver Baby Cup
My daughter was given a silver baby cup engraved with her name for a gift. One might think that a silver cup is an impractical gift, but I have found to be a lovely gift. Instead of putting it away, we sat it on her windowsill. As J. got older, it became a diaper-changing-time toy. Yes, it got banged and dropped, but that just put some nice dents in it to make it heirloom quality. Ben has given J. water out of it in an attempt to teach her to drink from a cup. Somewhat messy, as any non-sippy-cup would be, but the cup is lightweight, unbreakable, and easy for a young child to hold and sip out of.
