I fell of the wagon and and haven’t blogged in a while, but I’m hoping to be better. I don’t really have a lot new to tell you. Emilie will be 16 months old on Friday (Where did the time go?!?) and since I’m sure you’re all wondering…Yes she is weaned! LOL My little Emmie-bear is now onto cows milk, of course she’s still drinking the fancy stuff so its going to cost me a shiny nickel but I plan to start mixing the fancy with some good old fashioned Kroger milk next week and eventually wean her off the fancy stuff. I’ll let you know how that goes! Tonight was funny, I usually give her an evening milk before bed (since the last nursing session to wean was the just before bedtime) but I was craving milk and decided to fix a glass for myself and she was laughing and smiling like she thought I was drinking HER drink! So I asked her if she wanted some and she shook her head yes!!! First time she’s shaken her head to answer something. I made her a sippy of milk and it was gone in no time! I am so relieved. I was afraid she would never take to milk. She still gets lots of cheese and yogurt, but I want to be sure she’s getting adequate calcium. Here’s how big she is with her yogurt lately!
I’m amazed at how fast she is growing and changing. She figured out how to work the spoon in just a few days–now she’s got it down and can/wants to do it all by herself! If I try to help too much she gets very upset. I do help a little to make sure we get a good amount IN her mouth, but she does pretty well. Now the mess on the other hand!!!
Pardon the sleepy eyes…Em’s working on some teeth…her four canines are coming in all at once and its wearing her out. She’s being a pretty good sport about it but its definitely bothering her. Ok–ta ta for tonight!!
