Random Pics from this week

Well, Emerson's week has been better than the last, but things are still a little rough. A couple of her new teeth have broken through, but there are still more coming. It looks like there are two more coming and possibly the year molars.- Yea.

We are trying to adjust naptimes too. I am trying to work on shortening her morning nap so that she sleeps longer at night. (She has been waking at 6 instead of 7:30 for the past 2 weeks) So, far, she is adjusting to the change during the day okay but is not sleeping later in the morning.

She is now on whole milk and finally made it through that transition...the catch is that it is in the bottle. When we thought she was sick last week we gave it back to her as a comfort and to keep her hydrated. Little does she know that she is going to lose it again. My cousin gave me some great advice to skip the sippy all together and go straight to toddler cups with straws. Emerson LOVES to drink from big girl cups with straws, so I thought this would definitely work. WRONG. Any other advice?

Hope everyone had a great week.

Jackson had a hard time with cups with straws because he wanted to turn them up like a bottle and they leaked. I don't think it's a big deal to just go with the sippy cups for a while. They're so much more convenient to pack in your stuff when you're going places. We are still using sippy cups. That's probably bad. Oh well.

doesn't Nubby or whatever it's called make a bottle / sippy cup hybrid? Check at Babies R Us because she may feel like she's holding a bottle but get used to the sippy cup nozzle at the same time...ok, they look like these: but they have handle and you can switch out the bottle tip for a sippy cup tip, it comes with both. I have one we've never used so if you can't find them let me know and I'll send you mine!
