Our family

Also, my wonderful husband has offered to give Micah his 10pm bottle. Because I nurse AND stay home with my babies I do not expect Derek to get up in the middle of the night and help me feed Micah. Honestly, I don't expect Derek to help me feed Micah ever. When he is home I need his help with Parker while I am tending to Micah. But, I have started pumping and giving Micah about 1 bottle a day. Parker did NOT take a bottle and it was hard when we needed to be gone for something, but couldn't be for a long period of time. I decided that I would not let that happen with my other babies. Although pumping is not something I enjoy I do it. A few days ago Derek volunteered to give Micah his 10pm bottle so that I could pump and then go to bed or whatever. I didn't really think too much of it until I was able to pump, then crawl into bed and read, then go to sleep. I LOVED it!!! And when Derek has given Micah a bottle he has slept until after 3am every time...which is great! This also gives Derek some time with Micah. Anyways...yay for bottles when I need them. I love to nurse...but you don't realize how nice it is that your baby takes a bottle until you have one that doesn't! :)

Sweet Micah

I realized the other day that we hadn't taken a family picture yet. Before Derek and I went on our V-day date I had my mom take some pictures of us. I think it turned out pretty good!

Yeah, I totally hear ya. Gracen was not that great at taking a bottle and Grier just flat out refused! So we have been trying to give Evan a bottle regularly. It's been great so far. Glad it's working out for you too.
