Bye Bye Bye

I know, you just started singing the greatest *NSYNC song ever. It's been running wild in my head since I started thinking about this post. Just don't start doing the hand across your chest action thing or falling down in the rotating tunnel thing from the video (which turned up in High School Musical 3 for some reason (hey Troy, come up with your own idea)), that would be going to far. This however, is not a time to talk about my favorite boy bands. It is a time of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. It is time to say bye bye bye to the bottle.Look at that face, could you really take away her bottle (or bauble as she lovingly calls it). Yes, yes I can and I did. I said Sunday would be her last day to have it (no need to thank me ward members, I didn't want to hear her scream anymore than you did), but when she woke up Monday morning asking for it, I totally caved. I later regrouped, girded up my loins, and threw the darn thing in the garbage after she went to bed. This morning she whined a little and finally gave up and drank her milk out of the perfectly nice sippy cup I had given her. We celebrated by going to Walmart and buying some fancy new Elmo sippy's. Yea for big girls!!! Little big girls.

*Just a note, yes she held her bottle the wrong way. It is designed with an angle in it to help promote semi-upright feeding (according to their website!) but she always held it wrong, even if you turned it the correct way she would immediately turn it back around.

I think she gave you that look on purpose. They know so much more than they let on...;) I always found that it's so much harder on the mom than on the child. Way to go Kellie!

How cute is she! You did better than I did on the bottle. I let Kari keep it until she was 2. With her being the last baby.... I didn't want to let go of her being my baby with a bottle. But now she is super happy with the sippy. She still asks for the bottle every once a while, but she is really asking for her sippy cup. She actually found a bottle in the cupboard the other day and said...
"Bottle... Kaka" I would call that Success!

Congrats on your achievement. Think how liberated you will be now. First the bottle, then potty training - yeah for you!

Oh Molly, you are such a good example to Elle. I guess since you are six days older that means that we have six more days to get rid of Elle's bottle. Wish me luck Molly, I will surely need it!

You are such a good mom! I cant do it!!! Jetts Dr. even said at his 12 month check up that I need to get rid of the bottle. Not yet!! I think this one is more me than him. He is my baby! Maybe when he starts school :) J/K I feel it is coming soon! Yikes.

Kellie email me and I will invite you to my blog!
