Wow, really bad this time around! Almost 2 months with no posts.
Let's see, not much has really changed.
This past Saturday at almost 15 months we are no longer doing night time bottles. Josie will not drink milk out of a sippy cup. The only milk she was getting was her nightly bottle. I knew the Dr's didn't want them taking a bottle after 12 months but what do you do when they won't drink milk from a sippy cup? We had tried 4 different types of cups. She would sip milk out of the last cup we found but she wouldn't drink milk. Well the Dr confirmed what I was thinking of doing so we did it! She gets nothing to drink but 1 glass of water a day with her medicine in it and the rest she is only getting milk until she starts drinking like she is suppose to. Well it seems to be working. We filled up her milk glass 3 times yesterday. One cup use to last us a whole day, in and out of the fridge of course. The Dr said you have to be more stubborn than they are.
I was afraid she would really have trouble without that night bottle and start waking up again. But it's been two nights now and knock on wood, she's slept through the night both times.
Michelle and I took the kids to the pumpkin patch up by Morgantown yesterday morning. The kids seem to have alot of fun. We got us a big pumpkin. I think Josie's favorite part was probably the pumpkin patch. She just kept walking around and trying to pick up pumpkins.
That kid will pick up anything. Last night when daddy got home from hunting, she carried her riding toy to him so he would push her. I tell her she is a he-woman like her mommy!
Well that's it for today! I'll try and be better, I promise!!!
