Random ramblings of life in our household . . . and our journey through infertility and our arrival on the other side as we live life with our precious little boy brought to us through the gift of open domestic adoption.

The End of an Era
Isn't this a nice picture of our bottle cupboard? And yes, it really has been that neat, except for when all of the bottles have been in the dishwasher. However, this cupboard has looked exactly like this for the past week. You see, with a bit of meanness encouragement, Andrew has given up sworn off (cold turkey, no less) his beloved baabaas. Last Monday I sent him off to the babysitter with his milk in a sippy cup rather than a bottle. He wasn't happy, but by the end of the day had managed just fine. Andrew hasn't looked back since. He simply gets his milk in sippy cups now. On the one hand, if truth be told, I'm glad to be done washing the 27 parts of a Dr. Brown's bottle, but on the other hand, I'm a little sad to be done with this phase. While I will regain some cupboard space, I'll save the bottles in hopes of needing them again. Soon.
In the meantime, here's my sweet boy learning to use a spoon flinging oatmeal with a spoon, and drinking from a sippy cup. Oh, and Molly hoping for a taste.
