Bye Bye Bottle!
Well, I didn't want to write about it until a few days had past and I was sure it was true. But, low and behold, we have officially KICKED THE BOTTLE! After the ear doc told Ruby (and me) it wasn't good for her ears I stopped that night. She whined for about 5 minutes and that was it. I reminded her what the Dr. said and that it could hurt her ears and teeth. She asked for it again the next night and it was over in even less time. Never mentioned it again. Wow. I never thought it'd be so easy! I find myself mixed with excitement, pride, and a little sappy sentiment - for it is another sign of her growing up soooo fast! Without the bottle, she doesn't stay on my lap as long for lullabies. (Boo hoo) She'd rather wriggle out and lay beside me or go to her crib. Takes a little longer to get her down, too, but not much. But oh, how I already miss holding her like a baby and watching her drink her bottle. Thank God for our morning snuggles! I'm holding on to them as long as I can!
On another note, I started flossing her teeth and she is quite fascinated. Go figure! I did it once and now she requests it once or twice a day. This kid never ceases to amaze me!
