LIFE WITH LUNA

well for the most part luna is the best little girl. she goes with the flow, doesn't ask for too much. she makes messes in her little corner and is happy as can be. i took her bottle away and replaced it with a sippy cup when she turned a year old and she was fine with it. but since then, she's become addicted to it. she sucks on it like a pacifier and its created an overbite. her bottom teeth go back and the top teeth are just really bucky. it looks cute now but i imagine her having a hard time when she gets older. plus there comes a time when toddlers just shouldn't be sucking on cups all day. it also stopped her from eating normal food. she always requested milk and didn't accept anything else that she filled up on it & ate little or no food. i took it away last week and it was so difficult. there was so much crying during the day and at night. we replaced her cup with disposable cups with straws. that was a big mess. and after the fourth night, raoul and i gave up and gave her back her cup. mama & papa, fail. at first i was disappointed that we gave up on it but i think it has helped her since during the day she asks to drink water & organic orange, banana & strawberry juice. and she has been eating regular food a lot more. still, i need to deal with situations better. i let niko use a pacifier until he was 3 & now i have a similar situation on my hands. a mama never stops learning how to be better for her kids right? i know in the future i will have tons of harder dilemmas on my hands but right now, i am dealing with this.

Niko's grandma bought him this outfit @ kohls...
Luna's dress was gifted. its from target & vintage moccasins were bought from a farmers market in san diego.

They are adorable and their outfits are too cute!! I have the same similar problems. Julia suck her thumb to go to sleep and a couple of weeks ago I took away the pacifier from Evie. During the day she is good but she cannot put her self to sleep, she will stay up for hours. Julia has an overbite she will definitely have braces later on...but then again most kids do. Wishing you all the best mama!!! By the way, your hair looks great!
