Got Milk?

Yesterday I took Brody to the doctor for his 9 month check up. He lost some weight grew a couple of inches and has a big head. The dr. said well he's smart and long and lean! I definatley don't know where he get's the long and lean from (he doesn't look it)but we'll take credit for the smart part:) Well I was talking to the Dr. about some advice on weaning bc we'll be going on a cruise in less than one month and my mom will be watching him. So he was telling me that Brody could start drinking cow's milk. I was thinking skim milk since it would be easier to digest at first,but the Dr. said whole milk. so I bought a small bottle of whole milk for him to try bc I wasn't sure if he'd like it. Because I don't like milk at all. At dinner I put a little bit in his cup and at first he drank a big gulp and I though 'oh yea! he likes it'. then I gave him another drink and he did the gross burp gag like he wanted to barf. I though maybe he had to much food in his mouth so I tried it again. Nope he did the same burp gag and spit it out! so a little later I tried giving it to him again and he pushed it away and wouldn't open his mouth. He even waved 'bye' to it. But this morning I let him try my vanilla soy milk and....He liked it! he pulled the straw to his mouth bc he wanted more! he is his mom's son

That laugh he does at about 1:09 is hilarious. It's like a little gurgle or a "I know something you don't"

Vanilla Enriched Rice Milk is great too. And seriously though, yes he needs milk but remember if I kid hates a certain food, like milk, the world is not at an end. He can get great nutrition without it. Good job mom!

OOOOHhhh he's so chubby and cute! Those kids at the playground better watch out with the quick hand slaps he does. I can't wait to see him next month. I will help mom take care of him. He's my baby, too!
