Eli can spell...

he's a genius! Okay, he can't really spell but he and Marcus had a hilarious conversation at bedtime tonight.

However, before I tell you the story I have a confession to make. Here it goes...

Eli and Emerson still get a bottle before bed.

We've tried not to give them bottles but it makes Eli so sad, then one of the EI therapists had the grand idea that if we put water in it they would stop asking for a bottle altogether. So we tried that strategy. While they would still prefer milk they'll take water over nothing.

Every night before bed Eli says the same thing. "baba, milk"

and we say, "no water."

Tonight Marcus was saying to Eli, "No M-I-L-K for you"

and without missing a beat Eli said, "No milk, (then he sort of sighed) water."

He knew Marcus was spelling milk and that he wasn't getting any, see he's a genius.

In other thoughts I wonder if they'll ever get over the bottle.

Oh my gosh lol too funny...it's amazing how smart little ones are! At least he was resigned to his fate :-P

They'll stop....some day. I wouldn't worry about it. I'm not ready to fight the pacifier battle and probably won't...ever.
