The bottle update...

As I said, I have packed up all bottles and are never going back. We made it by 15 months so I am happy about that. Both girls were taking their milk fine from a sippy cup, and now Hannah has decided she hates it. She will not drink it with any flavor in it. If she sees the milk in the cup she wont touch it. If she tastes it, she makes a face and pushes it away. I have resorted to giving lots of yogurt and putting some chocolate or strawberry syrup in her milk at night, and then having her drink it without a lid for a few sips. Then I show her that I am putting the lid on the same cup and she will drink about half a cup before she is done and wants to go to sleep. Leah is fine with plain milk, and likes hers in a straw sippy cup. Whatever works!

Hannah has really taken up with a blankie too. She cuddles with it when she goes to bed and it has become her trigger to go "nigh nigh". Very cute.

So we have made it through the rough part anyway, even though Hannah is not getting the amount she needs but I am sure she will be fine eventually...
