Bottle Worries


Ok, so I am seriously about to have a nervous brake-down. I go back to work (part-time) in a week and my little stinker of a daughter has decided that she won't take a bottle anymore! I don't get it, she used to take a bottle without putting up a fuss, and then like a month ago, she decided that she wasn't going to have a thing to do with the bottle anymore.

I know what you all are thinking, how can a baby so cute innocent looking decide to do this? I really don't get it because my poor mom has been coming over every day to help Morgan practice taking a bottle. I feel awful because once Morgan sees the bottle, she starts crying. Then when the bottle is placed in her mouth, she gags and then starts crying hysterically. She gets herself so mad that she starts kicking and batting the bottle away, and the thing is, she is hungry. She is just so dang feisty and stubborn to give in. (She must get her temper from her father). ;) Morgan has put up this fight for longer than an hour before she finally gave in and took some of the bottle. I feel bad for my mom because Morgan now associates her with the bottle and cries when she sees her (even if she doesn't have the bottle). My pediatrician told me that I couldn't be the one to give her the bottle, and if any of you know my husband, he isn't the most patient person. He feels awful letting her cry so hard and then he gives in to her and then walks upstairs and hands her to me. We have found out that she will not take my milk out of a bottle and have had better luck with formula...?Weird. I have tried every make of bottle and I am seriously out of ideas. So if anyone can help, I definitely need it cause I don't want my babysitters to have to put up with her non-stop screaming. I wake up in the middle of the night with anxiety because I am afraid that my babysitters won't want to watch her anymore cause she is so naughty.

Morgie's 2 Months!!

My baby girl is growing up so fast! I can't believe that she is already 2 months old. I finally got Morgan's pictures taken and here are a few of my favorites (it was way hard to chose cause she is so dang cute). I had her pictures taken by Hayley at Captures Photography (in case anybody is interested). She spent so much time with Morgan and I couldn't believe how well they turned out. (Thanks for the tip Jen and Jill)!
