12 month old schedule

Below is the most average schedule for the month.

8:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.  Feed bottle, then breakfast
10:45a.m. - 11:00 a.m.  Put down for nap
12:00 p.m.  Feed bottle, then lunch
2:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. Put down for nap
4:15 p.m. - 4:45 p.m.  Snack (water sippy and cheerios, graham crackers or something along those lines)
6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.  Dinner
8:00 p.m.  Feed bottle
8:15 p.m. Bedtime

Eating: 5 feeding periods (3 main meals, 1 snack, 3 bottles) in 24 hours.
Number of Naps: 2
Duration of Naps: Morning nap must be kept around 30-45 minutes.  Afternoon nap is anywhere from 2-3 hours.
Hours of Sleep at Night: 12-12.5 hours of sleep.

Worth Noting:
-In order to have any kind of normal nap in the afternoon, I really have to keep the morning nap short.  My guess is that she drops her morning nap sooner than Duke did (at 15.5 months).
-There are occasional mornings that she does not end up taking a morning nap at all because of appointments or not napping well at church.  She actually does just fine.  I don't think she could handle it every day, 7 days a week.  But the fact that she can handle it at all means that we are definitely in the transitional period to dropping the morning nap.
-Around the time she turned 1, we dropped that 4:00 p.m. bottle feeding and replaced it with a small snack and water.  That leaves us with 3 bottle feedings.  The next one we drop will be the lunchtime bottle.
-She is not a fan of milk in the sippy cup right now.  We'll see if she gets used to it over time.
