Melissa is 10 months old today!

Thursday, April 17, 2008

Another month has gone by and she is getting closer to turning 1! Not much has been going on this past month. She is still crawling around not in any hurry to walk, which is ok with me. She is getting in to more things so we have to keep doors shut while she is crawling around. Melissa is making the funny face that I just love, if I say cheese she will make the face, or if she hears me turn on the camera. She is so silly!

Melissa is going through a faze that I don't like. She has stopped taking her bottle. She will not drink her formula. I have tried putting the formula in a sippy cup and nope she will not drink it. The last two weeks have been very hard on both of us. Melissa's pediatrician said for us to try giving her whole milk in a sippy cup and see if she will drink that. Nope she has nothing to do with that either. I worry about Melissa not getting enough to drink. I do give her water or juice and she will drink that.

So if anyone has any advice on what to do, I would love to read it.

Happy 10 Months Melissa!

Seems like we were just at 10 months....my how the months go by. Hope Melissa starts doing well with the sippy cup...I know that has to be frusterating and worrisome. She looks very cute in the pictures you took.

She is so cute. Brennen did not like whole milk at first either. I kept putting it in a sippy cup and offered it to him first before anything else. I also offered it to him before he took naps and went to bed at night. Now he drinks milk befoer his nap and at bedtime. At first he would refuse to drink it. Make sure you are always using the same brand of milk and use organic or not organic. I have tasted both and they taste different. When I put Brennen in daycare he would not drink the milk they had for him because it was not what he was getting at home. He now seems to drink any milk, but it took a month or so for him to really start wanting it. I also think that it being so cold had something to do with it. We did warm it to room temp for a couple of weeks to gradually get him use to the taste. Hope this helps. Maybe we can meet up sometime soon.
