A big day!

Today we had a very big day...
we are officially moving off the bottle! YAY!
We have had the hardest time breaking Addison. Every sippy cup we have tried she has hated and will drink milk out of nothing but her bottle. 
After her saying "bottle," we thought it was about time for us to really push it! 
We found this today at target

We brought it home washed it and she drank an entire cup of milk!
I was sooo excited! 
Hopefully, tomorrow she will do the same and we can go get a bunch more! :)

I also want to try this one. She took born free bottles and a friend told us it has the same feeling as her bottle! Now for the search.. I can not seem to find them anywhere! 

we bought a POTTY CHAIR! 
Addison has been pulling on her diaper every time it is wet or dirty, so I thought why not just go ahead and try it but.... She is deathly afraid of it! 
So we are going to work on it for the next couple of months and we will officially get it as long as we can get her to sit on the throne!! :)
The chair we bought, when the bottom gets wet it plays a little song. We thought it would make Addison like it better if we let her hear the music. Don't worry neither Brent or I used it! haha
We poured some water in the bottom of it... BAD IDEA!
Now the potty seat has become a toy. We want to poor water in it, hide our pacifiers, and all kinds of good stuff! 
We will see how this journey goes :)

Moms- If you have any tricks please share them!

Hope everyone had a great New Years!
I will post Addison's 17 month update soon!

Psalm 40:1
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.

  1. Whitnee has the same potty chair. When we went in for her 2 yr check up the doc told us most kids will potty train them selves by the time they are 3. Well one day she refused to put a diaper on so I told her well that fine but you have to wear big girl panties and potty on the chair. We brough her big girl potty into the living room and every 15 min we asked her if she needed to potty. Long story short she did it all on her own in just a week! She started this shortly after her 2nd birthday. If you want to read the full story go to my blog.. yes I blogged it HAHA www.bowlofsherry.blogpost.com Good luck!
