Goodbye Bottles

We are officially done with bottles! We are also done with formula!! *insert happy dance here* My nights are little better knowing that I don't have to mix formula before going to bed. Yes it's the little things. :) At their 1 year well visit the Dr. said we were fine to start them on whole milk. Around 11 months I introduced the whole milk to them here and there at mealtime to get them warmed up to the idea. I only ever gave it to them in a sippy cup. The day we ran out of formula I bagged up the bottles and only offered them milk in the sippy's. They were iffy about it and there was some protest but when they saw it was the sippy or nothing they chose the sippy. I'll admit there were a couple of times I wanted to cave but I didn't. I held strong and this is why we are bottle free! They also went from having 4 bottles plus meals to just having their sippy cups at meals. I now give them a little juice when they get up from naps which they love. All in all it wasn't that bad of a transition. On to bigger and better things because after all we are big kids now! :)

The next few photos I was shooting Nathan clapping. I love his face in these. He has such a cute little personality that just shines off of him. He is such a happy little boy!

That is how Nathan ends almost all of his meals. Happily clapping away. I will call these photos "Yay for sippy's!"
