BaBa Gone?

I finally decided that it was time to get rid of the bottles! With Crae turning 18 months this month, and Cannon making his debut next month, it was time. Since McRae turned one, she has only been allowed to have her bottle in bed. So only at nap time and bed time. This has made the transition surprisingly easy! Its been one week and we've have only had a couple of melt downs.
We got out ALL her bottles and lined them up. I told her it was time to "throw them away" and that bottles are for babies.
One by one she put them in the sack. I tied it up and let her put the sack in the trash can. She told them bye bye and that was it. Next nap time i layed her down and told her night night. She looked at me with the sweetest face and "baba gone?" I about lost it. It was so sad! I am so proud of her for being such a big girl making this an easy transition for both of us! I love her so so much!

She is so big! It is a hard thing to let go of those "baby" things. What a big girl to do so well with it! Good way to get rid of the bottle. :) She's as cute as ever!
