amazing

After 10 months of rejecting the bottle/sippy cup/straw, basically anything but mommy, Gwen decided to drink a 4oz. bottle today! AMAZING! I thought the day would never come. We tried everything we could think of to get her to drink her liquids besides what she was getting from me. I am so happy I nurse her, but it would be nice for her to take a bottle once in a while when I need/ or want to go somewhere without her. So hopefully, if she continues I can go out longer than 3 hours with Jono or maybe even a little get away with out having to worry about taking Gwen with us, or rushing back in time to feed her. This is the start of something great! I love nursing her, it is such a bonding moment for us, But as she is creeping up on her 1st birthday, I am thinking that it's time to call it quits. We will just have to see that she's not tricking us and really does take more than one bottle. One step at a time I guess.

What a relief! She is such a doll. And it was fun seeing Christmas pictures of your family. I can't believe Lauren is back already! Your family is so fun.

GG surprised me. I thought for sure she was going for the "I never took a bottle" goal. What a sweetheart. She looks like she is liking it. We need to come back and keep her too. That was so much fun. ILYT oxoxox

What a relief for you. It sounds like as sweet as she is she has a mind of her own. She is a sweetheart.
