The baby of the family.
There is definitely a difference in how you treat the last baby of your family. I hardly have the self control I need not dig though the trash and disinfect his bottles so he can have one. I'm sitting here listening to J cry himself to sleep. I keep trying to rationalize the reasons why I haven't already taken them away, but the truth is, I have enjoyed how easy it has been to sooth him with them, and put him down so easily to bed; not to mention he refuses to drink milk out of a sippy cup. We have tried all different kinds. He will only drink water and juice out of them. The doc says just to give him other forms of calcium now since he actually is on the curve now! Yep, J made into the 5th percentile for his weight and height! I have no more excuses. I know it's been time to take him off the bottle for a few months now, but he is almost all recovered from the surgery, so I just need the self control not to give in. :) I sure love my baby boy.
