Bottles, bikes and Bob

I think I am making progress getting Aubrie to take a bottle. Today before we left for town she nursed a little, and then I pumped about 2 ounces and brought it with us. She drank the whole bottle with no problems when we were in Walmart. Then when we got home I nursed her again a little (she quit herself when she feel asleep) and then she took almost a 4 hour nap. John and I just fed her another bottle, 3 ounces this time, and she took it with no problems. So I guess this is an answer to prayers because if she didn't take a bottle then I wasn't going to be able to go back to work. Even though it will be part time, I don't need to go to work bad enough that I make other people miserable listening to her cry because she wants to nurse so bad. I just hope now that she doesn't decide that she likes the bottle better and quits nursing. I don't think I am disciplined enough to pump for an extended period of time, so it is either nurse and pump milk for when I am working, or formula most of the time, and some breastmilk. So now instead of praying that she takes a bottle please pray that she doesn't like it toooo much!!! Since I typed this earlier in the day, I have since nursed her twice with no problem, so hopefully it will stay that way. A happy medium with bottle and breast.

Last night at our Bible study we had just a fellowship time. It was wonderful. We women need that time to just talk as we want about what we want! There were a few of us missing because of the summer schedules and stuff, but it was still a great group of women. One of the moms had a baby a week ago, a little early, but both mom and son are doing great! So cute he is! Aubrie wasn't the only baby girl there either, one of the moms had a daughter on the 27th of March, so they are only 2 weeks apart. And Aubrie rolled from her back to her stomach for the first time last night!!! She has been able to go from her stomach to her back for a long time now, but this was the first time that she has gone from back to stomach! It was super exciting! I tried to get her to do it today, but she will only scoot her self in a circle on the floor! Her head stays in pretty much the same place, but her lower body goes around and around and around! I have a couple of pics on the camera but it is in the car and it is raining, so you are going to have to wait a while!!!

Wyatte got a bike tonight! It has been sooo humid today and I couldn't stand being in the house anymore, so we headed into town. We needed to return some movies and so we did that and then went to Walmart. John headed right to the bikes and they started looking at the smaller ones. Wyatte picked out the "Spidey" one as he says! He could actually pedal it around in the store, so we will see how he does in the real world!!! I should have been looking at garage sales for one, but oh well!!! If it isn't raining tomorrow we are going to help him get going on it! So I will get pics up of that for you!

Bob the Builder is going to be in town tomorrow too, so will have pics of that hopefully!!!
