Penelope had been sick throwing up for a few days. In that time she got no milk and only a bottle of water every now and then (crackers, soup) so after she was all better I decided it was time to kiss the bottle goodbye. She's been able to drink out of a sippy cup and cup shortly after she turned 1 year old, but she preferred a bottle and especially after Remington was born she really clung to the bottle even more. She had been bottle free for. 2 days and the world is still spinning with only a few major melt downs. I'm sad to see my baby girl growing up, but she is growing into quite the firecracker and we love our Penny!
