Abby loves her bottle, at least that is what she calls it. Until a few months ago I was actually giving her a real bottle, until I found a sippy cup (the tall, skinny, Nuby kind that has the soft top) that she thinks resembles a bottle, so Abby loves to have it and still calls it her bottle. She loves it so much that I was even told by the pediatrician that she was probably getting too much milk per day so now I only try to give it to her at naps and bedtime.
Lately Abby has been waking up around 6:30 a.m. or 7:00 a.m. and crying, sometimes she will go back down and others she won't. If she won't go back down I will go in and I change her bum and every time she says "bottle" because she wants a bottle. So I have been giving in and giving her a bottle when I go in and change her because then she will go back to sleep until 9:30 or 10:00 which I love because I stay up late at nights working and don't mind her sleeping in that late.
Well on Friday night we ran out of milk and I didn't go and get any because I knew I would be going to the store on Sat. I was hoping she would stay asleep and not wake up and want a bottle but that was not the case. She woke up so I went in, changed her bum and she asked for a bottle but I told her she didn't need one and laid her back down to sleep. She cried for a minute but then I assumed she went back to sleep because I didn't hear anything out of her until 45 minutes later when she cried out again and she was mad! She wanted a bottle dang it and would not take "no" for an answer. Luckily I had remembered that I had a Pediasure drink in my pantry from awhile ago so I put that in her bottle and took it in to her. Well when I came into her room she was sitting up in her crib and when she saw the bottle in my hand she clapped her hands and said, "Yeah, you did it, a bottle!" I just started laughing, so I gave the bottle to her and let her finish it because I don't like to give it to her in bed, I made sure she burped and put her back down and said, "night, night" to which she replied, "bye, bye bottle." So apparently she is a wee bit attached to her bottle and we are going to have to break her of it eventually. But I can't believe how much Abby is talking and what she is saying is getting more clear and understandable, not to mention pretty hilarious!
