My first Mother's day was faaabulouus, thanks to certain sweet man. I woke up to a plate of eggs and bacon with a rose bud on the side. There were fresh flowers arranged (by him!) in the bathroom and they're still there, open and fluffy and just begging to have your nose stuck in them. T's yummy crispy salmon was for lunch and Panera's white cheddar mac n cheese for dinner (SO good). I got a box of See's chocolates with my new favorites, the strawberry truffle (white chocolate and strawberry) and the mint truffle (white chocolate and peppermint). Adam seemed to understand the purpose of the day and was even more good-natured than usual. Truly a day of rest with my wonderful family!
Now a question: At Bug's 4 month doctor's appointment, his doctor told us he could begin eating solids if we wanted, starting with rice cereal mixed with breast milk. I still can't even get him to drink out of a bottle consistently! When he does take the bottle (which we try to give him at least once a week just so he stays familiar with it) he never drinks a full meal and I end up having to finish him off. Does anybody else have a baby who just wants the juice straight from the boob? I know that several decades ago there was usually no other options, no pumps, and that women just altered their lives to be there when their babies were hungry. I know that he eats fewer meals the older he gets; his doctor recommended getting him down to 3 meals a day by 9 months (another thing I have no idea how to do), so should I even worry with the bottle? Just looking for some suggestions, maybe a tip or two.
