We are trying to get Buddy to take a bottle or a sippy cup this weekend. It is time. I have attempted this for several weeks now with absolutely no success. I have tried every sippy cup known to man; I have used his old bottle - the one he hasn't used for months now. I have tried all baby-friendly forms of liquid. Today I bought another type of sippy cup and another type of bottle. Babushka was nice enough to drive down for a very quick trip this weekend to try to help me in the process thinking that if the baby didn't see me when it was time to drink, he would have an easier time.
And he did a little better for her today than he has done for me.
But my child is STRONG-WILLED. Go figure. He would rather be thirsty than give in.
Pray for us. We only have a couple of days with Babushka as an extra pair of hands to get Buddy to do this.
Oh - and update on Buddy's 12 month doctor appointment...
30 1/2 inches (50th-75th percentile for 1 year olds --- this is in the 90th percentile for 10 month olds, which he technically is 9 1/2 months old)
19 lbs 8 oz (5th-10th percentile for 1 year olds, 10th-25th percentile for 10 month olds)
head circumference 18 inches (25th-50th percentile for 1 year olds, same for 10 month olds)
He did great with his blood test - no tears at all -for iron and to check for lead poisoning, and he wasn't too out of control when he had four shots.
