I tried EVERYTHING...5 different bottle nipples, multiple sippy cups, my husband tried and so did my mom. But this sweet girl CRIED AND CRIED AND CRIED. For hours. It was miserable. So, I made the decision to stay home with her. And you know what? As sad as I am that I am not with my husband and in-laws on this amazing trip I wouldn't trade this experience with my baby for anything. You get this small window of "baby time" and I am going to relish every minute of it. Some may judge and say I am crazy. Some would say just leave her and she will figure it out. But that's not what I wanted to do.
So, today I am just going to snuggle her, kiss her and enjoy my 35th birthday with my little ones and my parents. And don't think I won't pop some bubbly and celebrate with something sweet!
And a HUGE thanks to my incredibly sweet girlfriends for throwing me one of the best 35th birthday parties...a corks and canvas party! We painted, drank wine, and laughed as we channeled our inner Picasso. What a blast! I highly suggest it if you and your friends want to do something fun. My party was at Artichokes in Mission Farms (for those of you in KC).

And here is our finished work! I can't wait to hang mine in our master bath.
Have a great Monday everyone!
