Milking it for all it's worth

We have a new spokesmodel for the Got Milk? campaign -- Little Elvis!

His doctor said we could start trying whole milk products at his last appointment, so we headed out to the grocery store the next day.

Bob and I were debating what we should give him the milk in. I keep seeing all of these scary articles on bottles, so we opted for his sippy cup.

Little Elvis wasn't interested in drinking milk out of his sippy cup, though. Since that was a bust, we thought we'd try it with a big boy cup.

When we were in Mississippi in September, my father taught Little Elvis how to drink out of a big boy cup. I was not happy with Coach-pa for this little gem, because Little Elvis is no longer content to just suck on the bottom of my water glass.

But it came in handy for his first few sips of whole milk! I think he would look great in a milk moustache commercial.

whoa, he really liked it, huh? I can't believe your ped says to give him milk already. Wow. Are you still nursing?

I asked the ped about starting him on eggs, and he, usually a very laid back kinda guy, said nope, wait till 1 year. So we are. I won't do milk till 1 year also, just because of the whole nursing thing. Anyway, what a great job he did with that cup! Zach likes to drink out of my water cup but chokes himself lol

I am still nursing. We were surprised about the milk as well, but he definitely took to it pretty well. He's getting maybe an ounce a day. We give it to him after dinner so he can play with the cup while we eat.
