FINALLY!!!!!! GOALS REACHED!



Most of you know I had two main goals to accomplish this summer! Well, I can finally say that I have done it! First, Aiden has been potty trained for about a month now and rarely has any accidents anymore! (Hence the pic of him sleeping in big boy undies!) Second, Grady, my very stubborn Grady, is FINALLY taking a bottle!! I have been nursing him for almost a whole year now and I have tried everything I could think of to get him to take a bottle! I didn't want to nurse after he was one and his birthday is in 11 days so I cut it close! Through a very painful process it has finally worked! He still looks funny drinking the bottle since he doesn't suck on it, he puts it to the side of his mouth and chews the milk out! It's quite odd looking, but none the less he is drinking from it! I am so happy I can't even find words to express it fully! But just know that my life is pretty great right now! Victoria Secret here I come, I'm gonna need some support after almost two full years!!! :) :)

Congrats Tara!!!! Wow you've been busy this summer, we'll come back and your boys are all grown up! What an awesome accomplishment! I would actually love your advice on breastfeeding, it seems like a lot of my friends I've been talking to lately don't make it to a year (which is my goal) so you'll have to share your secret with me! And I love Aiden's big boy underroos, what a cool kid :)

One year! Way to go! Brayden won't take a bottle either. I have a feeling we'll be in the same place in about 8 months, with Taylor and Brayden. I'm nervous about the potty trainging the most! Share your secrets please!

Tara--Hey I found your blog through the Packards. Your family is so cute. I can't believe how grown up your boys are. Lucy never took a bottle, I feel your pain. I am glad it is over for you. Have fun at victoria secrets :)

yeah.. that's so exciting. I love the feeling you get when you've reached something that seemed impossible. NOW... since you are having such a great run with your goals, do you have any tricks up your sleep to help taking the bottle away for naps and night-time? feel free to voice anything... because little Chanler LOVES his bottle.

First off, I am so jealous that Aiden is potty trained. I was wondering if you can come work your magic on Damon? Second...you definitely deserve a VS shopping spree. Lastly, Grady's party is the same night as my preschool open house unfortunately, so I don't think we can come. Maybe Joe can bring Damon. We should do something soon though.
