Nighty - Night
Ava is so sweet! I love at bedtime how she rubs her hand up and down my side and just looks up at me. She has become so snuggly lately. It melts my heart :) She is almost completely weaned off of breast milk. I still nurse her about once a day. I have tried Enfamil and Simalic and she seems to like Enfamil more. She won't take it in the ready-made bottles though because its at room temperature. I have to mix the dry formula with warm water. I guess shes so used to breast milk being warm that she won't have it any other way. Sooo spoiled!
I thought I would have a break down once she started taking formula and ball my eyes out. But you know what, it hasn't been a bad transition. I still snuggle up with her, even when I'm giving her a bottle. I'm very proud that I nursed her for almost 9 months but I think it was time. Today I am going to start her on a sippy cup with some diluted apple juice. We'll see how that goes!
