Here is Blake posing in his best baby pose.
I am always bugging this kid with kisses and hugs. He told me he was ready for some independence. I talked with my midwife about introducing a bottle of my milk so I can someday leave him with Andrew and go to the gym and she said now is the time.
So last night Andrew gave him his first bottle. He sucked it down in record time and I had to finish feeding the guy. This guy can eat! I am excited to maybe leave tonight and get my hair cut while Andrew plays Mr. Mom at home. As much as it was hard to give up all feeding control, I know it will give us more flexibility in the long run. Bottles will be on an "as needed" basis as I am planning on breastfeeding Blake until he is at least one year old (then on to the next kid!). Andrew is a super dad and enjoyed his time in the spotlight.
