Maryam drinks formula from a bottle?

Yeah, so last night we were all sitting around watching Sarah feed Charlie Mae when Maryam crawled up to Auntie Sarah and tried to take the bottle. Auntie Sarah being nice gave it to her. And strangely, Maryam took a few swigs! OF FORMULA! FROM A BOTTLE!
I'm REALLY starting to think that Maryam wants to eat, but just doesn't know how. We've been told by her ST that Maryam's swallow is all wrong and because of that, she has difficulty getting anything down. So we have to figure out a way to teach her to swallow properly so that she can drink from the bottle, or cup or straw or whatever is suiting her fancy for the day.
Here is Maryam putting the bottle in her own mouth. Of course she wasn't doing it properly, but the important thing is she appears to want to put it in her mouth. AND she did try to drink from it.
