Now that Will is completely weaned, he isn't very interested in letting me rock him to sleep. He fusses, and wiggles and pulls away until I lay him down. He would much rather lay in the floor and drink his bottle than have me give it to him.
Will does not suck his thumb. So, I'm not sure how I got this picture.
After he has finished his last bottle of the evening he prefers that I lay him in his crib and leave him alone. He giggles and smiles when I lay him down and give him is lion LUV. I have to keep reminding myself when I see that he is happier alone in his bed than rocking with me that this was the goal. (We spent many nights listening to him scream for hours.) He is doing so good now.
He has also joined our family at the dinner table. He tasted a little broccoli last night. And he is getting better at eating baby food. He happily ate an entire bowl of oatmeal tonight.
