For awhile now, I've thought that Selah wasn't getting all the liquid that she really needed from me. She wasn't wetting her diapers as much and was eating a ton of food the last week or so. I think she just went through a big growth spurt (literally on her 1st birthday). She's suddenly like a little kid now and not so much like a baby any more!
On her birthday night, we were busy and distracted with small group and she didn't get to eat as much as I think she wanted to, but then it was time for bed. So I nursed her and put her down and she LOST it. I mean, screaming, crying, coughing, gagging, yelling for "Mama" and just not calming down. After about 45 minutes of intermittently trying to soothe her with no success, I suggested to Quinn that we get a cup of milk to see if she was hungry. She chugged it. I think she may have been a little hot from crying as well, and the cold milk probably felt pretty good going down. She'd had milk before, but it was then that I realized she really did like it and probably needed it, because my milk alone didn't seem to be cutting it.
Anyway, just thought I'd share for posterity's sake and to post the incredibly adorable pictures of Selah on her first day of tipping her own cup. Abram didn't figure out how to tip a cup until he was at least 18 months, maybe later. So this might be the first thing that she has done before he did it. Not that I'm comparing... right :)
