Quick update on the bottle situation… There has been more screaming and more rejection, but finally we figured out something that works. He cannot be held in a breastfeeding or similar position when given a bottle…meaning, no laying down or cradling. If he is held on our lap, sitting up, with his back leaning against us, he will accept the bottle. We’ve done it like that twice today with no screaming or rejection…a little fussiness, but nothing too bad. YAY.
Without further adeiu, here is our “9 Things Meme” (9 Things that we love…and yes, originally it was 7, but I liked Insert Metaphor’s idea of 9 pictures and these go for both Nutella and I)
In no particular order, these things are:
2. Gourmet food
3. Sleeping Curly
5. Our chihuahua
8. Smiling Curly
9. Each other
Thanks to the 3 blogs that tagged us…it looks like by now, pretty much everyone has done this 🙂 If you haven’t, consider yourself tagged.

I’m glad you’ve worked out a solution with the bottle – good job! I’m so happy you did the picture model too – I love seeing your collage.
Glad to hear it didn’t take long to figure out his bottle preference!
Wow, I would have never thought to try that solution–glad you figured it out!
Glad to hear that you have come up with a solution to the bottle issues. I am sure it was a bit stressful! Cute pics 🙂

Ladies, quick question for you. Did you feel that the Bradley classes were a valuable tool in your childbirth? The only series near us is 12 weeks long, two hours a week! It seems very thorough, but I wanted to see what you thought.
Please email me if you have a chance.
