Bottle be gone… almost

I don’t want to jinx it, but it has been a week of no night-time bottles!  We have been giving Alex his milk in a sippy cup, and he is actually drinking it – a big improvement since previously the cups would be thrown on the ground.  Alex has always taken juice and water from a cup – but not his milk – so this is a huge!  Hopefully soon he will finish his milk at dinner and night-time milk will be done for good.

Now on to the morning bottle… think I will try that this weekend – wish us luck!

One Year Ago…

One year ago right about now… we received the second most important phone call a waiting parent could get – the Travel Call!  The Library wasn’t open, so no one was answering the phone.  Maria from CB called Matt at work when she couldn’t reach me.  When Matt got the news, he tried to call me – but of course he couldn’t because of the whole phone thing.  In the mean time, I had e-mailed Maria to tell her if she had any good news for us, she could call me at a certain extension since I wasn’t in my office and didn’t know I  had voice mail (I know – confusing), and instead I got an email back, “Haven’t you spoken to Matt yet? – Go get your son!” 

The rest of the day was a blur.  I couldn’t concentrate so I went home early, and poor Matt was in the midst of trying to teach and trying to arrange accommodations and plane tickets.  I have goose bumps thinking about it again.  And a huge grin on my face!
