Licking but not chewing?

My ds coming up 7 months, we've started weaning over the last month or so. I've mostly been giving him the baby porridge which he loves. I give him fruit like banana but he doesn't eat anything he just looks at it and licks it but that's about it. He will not take any water from a sippy cup either. Am I doing something wrong

No, you're not doing anything wrong, it can take a while for them to get the hang of it. Keep offering finger foods and the water and eventually he'll get the idea. Try a variety of finger foods - different colours, textures, smells. He'll get there.
