Hey ladies! Let me know if anything needs changing! -Liz
Thanks for the replies about the self-weaning thing girls! Our dr emailed me back and said "sounds like self-weaning behavior - GREAT!" We just need to make sure to get 16oz of formula into her each day (through sippy cups or in her oatmeal or whatever) but there's no need to bother with the bottle anymore. It complicates feedings a little bit because here I am trying to help juliette self-feed and deal with a sippy cup while simultaneously feeding elia a bottle. I may try to start weaning her soon too just to make it easier. Ah life with twins. ;)
Sandy- I think a pendant (to do qith the old set) is a good idea.Sarah- OMG!!! That conversation was hilarious!!Andi- She could be self weaning... but it could also be some sort of "phase"... I say you should keep offering her fruits and other juicy stuff (to keep her hydrated) and try to offer milk every few days, she might go back to it. Also, Fede's pedi allowed plain cow's milk as soon as he was a year old, and he loves it!Waving "hi" to everyone else!!!
Andi- David weaned at 7.5 months. He just wasn't interested anymore. But also around the same time I couldn't get any milk out either when I was pumping. So I think that might have something to do with it. I think I was losing my milk.

Andi- I think some kids just naturally wean from some stuff early.
Aw, Christine, that is a huge bummer, I'm sorry
Omg, I just typed this whole darn thing out, and then I accidently clicked a link and lost it all. Ughh.
Andi- we are right in there with you. Max's second tooth just popped through but I think he's working on at least 2 more.
Erica- Are you homeschooling Fletcher, too, or just Jonah? I can't remember. My mom's college friend homeschooled all 5 of her kids through elementary. I don't think I have enough discipline to stay on task, though.
Christine- I'm so sorry about the interview. That makes me nervous because I just had an interview on Friday and she showed me around and introduced me to everyone.
AFM- As I said, Max got his top right middle tooth on Sunday, so now he has that one and the bottom right middle. He will let go of stuff while standing for a second or two now before he sits on his butt. I think he's scared of falling or he'd be stepping. I don't get it though, because he is not afraid to jump off the couch or bed lol.
Our trip to Texas went as well as I could have hoped. The drive down was flawless. The drive back was a little more tedious, though, because his sleep schedule got messed up while we were there. We had a lot of fun. We saw the Alamo and the Mexican border and went to South Padre Island and stuck our feet in the Gulf of Mexico.
