Our pediatrician advised us to start weaning them from the bottle at their 15 month appt. It seems sooo soon. :( And yet, here we are. That age... So, we're giving them the bottle less and their straw cups more. They seem happy either way. I think the nighttime bottle will be the last to go.
In addition, they are starting to wean themselves from their 2nd nap. I think the days of 2 naps are numbered. Seriously. Instead of am/pm, I think we'll end up with something around 11:30-2ish, and then bedtime around 8. This will be quite a change... We were napping twice and bedtiming around 9:30ish. And now... Wow. It does, however, give us time for other things, like...
-a weekly playgroup at our local parish, which I havent been able to do because it is 9:30-11:30, which meant it interfered with breakfast and naptime. Now, with breakfast at 8am and a nap not until 11:30ish, this might become a weekly date!
-a monthly playgroup at our (old local) parish, which was also a 9:30 start time.
-a weekly music class, which is from 10:30-11:15. I signed the babies up and their first class was the 7th.
Happy 16 month birthday, Bobby and Maya. You are both such wonderful blessings and I am so thankful every day that I have the pleasure of mothering you. You are my greatest dreams realized. I love you so much.
