Update on us

I feel like I haven't had a chance to post in FOREVER! I can hardly believe that my little lady will be 9 months already next week!

She's doing so many new things lately, the biggest of which is really crawling. Boy-oh-boy is she on the move! And she finds things I didn't even know were on the floor for her to grab (like a lady bug the other day). She's also getting really good at transitioning from crawling to sitting and vice-a-versa, and is starting to pull up on things. Her coolest new trick is that she whistles. I couldn't believe she was doing it the first time I heard it, but she definitely whistles... and she makes the CUTEST face when she is doing it.

So far as eating goes, she's still a major boobie babe, but I am seeing glimmers of hope. She's getting pretty good at using her straw sippy cup with some water in it, and I really need to bust my pump back out to see if she'll take BM from it. And, for the first time ever the other night she repeatedly opened her mouth wanting more food (yo-baby, which she turned he nose up at the week before). She hasn't been enthusiastic like that since, but I figure it's got to be a good sign that she'll get there sometime in the foreseeable future!

I hope things are going well for all of you ladies, too! I will try my best to pop on more often Smile

Thanks for the update..I was wondering how your bottle attempts were going. Sometimes just working with what's working is the best way to go - ie. bm in a sippy cup. Good luck!

When is your trip that you were concerned about being in the airport and nursing?

Time really is flying now for sure.

Thanks for the update!

We head out in a week and a half! I'm still a bit apprehensive about how the day will go, as it will be LONG and I know NIP isn't easy for us... But, I'm going to be positive and just try to go with the flow. I'm sure if I'm stressed out it'll only stress Izzy (and everyone else) out too!

Sara - You're not a bad mommy! If Tommy is happy with his bottle you've got no need to rush the sippy cup! He's got PLENTY of time Smile

I find it's such a PITA to give one to Colin, watch him either spill it all over the place (by shaking it upside down) or get frustrated with it because all he's getting is air, that I don't try very often either. You're not alone!
