Whew, we made it through!

I haven't posted in a few days because we have been dealing with a mini-crisis in our home. As Piper is now 1, her doctor suggested that we stop formula and give her milk. The way Piper acted, you would have thought I was pouring acid down her throat! She wouldn't have anything to do with milk for 2 days unless it was mixed with some formula. My wonderful husband and I spent every meal of our anniversary (yesterday!) fighting her on this. A 12 month old, especially my 12 month old, can be very stubborn. I kept thinking what are we gonna do at Disney when she melts down like this and won't drink her milk?!

Today, we had a breakthrough. I don't know if she gave up or just got used to it, but she drank her milk (without formula) ALL day, even reaching for her cup herself without being prompted! I literally found myself tearing up at lunch because my baby finally did it! It was tough, but I think we made it through! Also, she is down to one bottle a day(of milk), and I think I can break her of that in the next few days! That means I won't have to pack bottles at all!!!

I know this topic might be silly to some, but it was a MAJOR milestone in our house! Now if we can just get through her birthday party tomorrow so I can really pack.... :)

See ya real soon!
