Maggie and the Chocolate Milk Bottle

Sadie has a few toy bottles (that are real bottles we never use that she plays with). Now and then Nani will fill a bottle with diluted hot cocoa and give it to Sadie as a treat. Yesterday I caught Sadie holding a bottle of hot cocoa up to Maggie's lips.

Maggie doesn't take bottles. I guess I'm just to lazy to go to all the trouble of repeated boiling (well water here at Nani's) and after some 27 months of nursing we just haven't really needed to (I did try to give Sadie expressed milk when we went on vacation once... I thought it would be easier on the road... instead we had a bought of something like colic that lasted for the rest of the day and part of the night... so that also probably contributes to my current bottle-less stance).

Still, she knew what that bottle was for. She latched right on and fought me as I tried to take it away. Thankfully it was nearly empty and I think, at the very most, she got a drop that was in the nipple.

However, whatever taste she got, she loved and kept reaching for it. And of course, her loving big sister, spent the rest of the night trying to smuggle her sippie cups and bottles.

Maggie wishes she was Sadie-Sized. She's determined to do everything her sister does.

Did your second babies (or any subsequent ones) do things like crawling and walking earlier than your first ones did? Maggie just always seems to be trying to do things because her sister does. She doesn't even want board books because her sister has paper ones (and that's just a disaster waiting to happen!). She's always watching her sister and she wants to do everything!


  1. Yes, they have all been diffrent. What a sweet photo of your little one.

  2. Definitely. My fifth child got up and walked across the room on her 9-month birthday. She ran one week later. And my hair began to rapidly turn gray! lol!

    So cute about the chocolate milk. I thought my baby (9 weeks) smelled a lot like peppermint the other day and noticed sticky around his mouth. Three-year old big sis had been sharing her lollipop with him because "he was hungry!"

  3. Cam, what a great blog and your family is beautiful!! I am so thrilled to have you reading my blog, and I loved your comment!! Glad to know you!! :)

  4. LOL so cute!

    Yeah Zavier is doing things a lot sooner. I don't know if its because of Kalila, because he's a boy (eh... usually they're later aren't they?) or just him. He's already taking some steps on his own. Not many but still... he wasn't even 8 months old when that started. Kalila didn't even try until 10 or 11 months. I do know he tries to mimic her some though becuase he'll watch her jump and start bouncing his legs trying to do it too lol. And he'll mimic her screams too :-/ It gets loud here now...

  5. Hi! I just found your blog through Allison's and saw this picture of your cutie pie (I also have a daughter named Maggie and a Theology studying/teaching hubby)in a Patriots outfit. Are you or your husband from New England? We live in MA. Nice to meet ya!

  6. Hi Colleen,
    Nice to meet you! My husband is from a little town south of Boston, but we're out in California for the time being! But we're all New England sports fans! And we're waiting to see where we end up next as he applies to Law Schools all around the country.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
