The new morning routine.....

 
This is Caraline's first ever morning sippy cup!
 


Here I am trying to get a picture of Caraline and her daddy for the post today but she isn't liking the picture break in between bites of her breakfast.



Today we are starting the first day of doing a sippy cup in the morning instead of the usual bottle!!  I was a little worried about how this was going to go.  Caraline was breastfed up until 11 months, during this time I was able to exclusively breastfeed 4 days a week and then she got a bottle on the 3 days that I had to work.  she always did fine with a bottle once we found the one that was right for her (avent) but seemed to just tolerate it and preferred the breastfeeding, so I guess maybe that has made the process of getting rid of the bottle pretty easy??  at 11 months when done breastfeeding we started doing a morning bottle, sippies during the day, and then a nighttime bottle, realistically we prob could have just gone straight to the sippies from breastfeeding but I think that holding on to these couple of bottle feeds has been more for my
benefit, I get to hold her during this time and she is still my sweet little infant and not my big girl toddler with her cup!....but it is time and she is ready!.....so in the end I am thankful that this transition for her (and me too) has started out so well this morning!!!

  8. Ahh, the sippy cup milestone :) We are on to cups at my house... not so sure I like spilled milk, water, juice, etc.... on the floor too much, but we're (I should say she ~ the rest of us do just fine) getting better.
