Transitions.

So what's new in our world? Well we are going thru some transitions with Noah. We have cut him down from 5-6 bottles of formula a day to 3. Starting today we are working on going from formula to whole milk so we are doing half & half in those 3 bottles until we run out of formula. It was suggested that we start him on the whole milk in the sippy cup but I don't think we are ready to give up the bottle at nap and bedtimes yet. We are doing water in the sippy cup during the day and we will give him water in a bottle at night if he needs something after the formula.
We are also trying to cut out baby foods and go completly to table foods. This is going well considering that up until the time he came home with us ( a little over two months ago ) the only thing he was eating was formula and some rice cereal. The sleep thing at night still isn't consistent but we are getting some good sleep nights mixed in with the not so good so we have definitly seen enough progress to keep us from being in total despair.
Noah is definitly showing signs of being comfortable in his home and testing his limits, we have also seen good signs that he is attached to us which other people have noticed as well.
So thats it for our crazy life right now. Soon I will have pictures of Noah at the first birthday party he has attended. My friends little girl turned 1 on Saturday.
