Bottle strike

My child has never had an issue switching from breast to bottle. He's never complained about taking a bottle, never cared what kind of nipple was going in his mouth. Well I guess he likes to keep Mommy on her toes because that all changed last week. After him being sick, my supply was tanking badly so we had to start supplementing with formula... no big deal. He was getting 4-6oz of formula a day and nursing the rest. Then suddenly, after he had already downed one can of formula (a small sample size can), he decided it was no good. Now, if you come at him with a bottle, he will push it away, close his mouth, turn his head and scream like you are torturing him. Thankfully, I've been able to get my supply back up some so he's not starving but I really wish he would take a bottle again so mommy could have a little break sometimes. Maybe he will change his mind soon. Hopefully.

His 6 month appointment was supposed to be on Tuesday (1-31) but we took him in on Monday to have his ears rechecked from the infection, so they went ahead and did his well-baby check-up. He is now 16lbs, 8oz and 25" long. His left ear is (was) still slightly infected so he got some different antibiotics and he got 4 shots. The dr was a little concerned about his weight gain (or lack thereof) but I really think it has to do with him being sick. Needless to say, this week has been hell between the shots, teething and bottle strike. Oh and he hates purees.

He thinks the paper on the exam table is the coolest thing ever! 

We have had some good news this week though. Great news, actually. Curtis had an interview on Monday and they offered him the job on the spot! :) YAYAYAYAY!!! It will be weird at first because we have gotten used to having him home but it will be ok... we needed it!!

And a little more good news... I'M GOING TO BE AN AUNT!!!!! Huge congrats to my brother and his fiance! I am so excited for yall!!!

Oh and keep an eye out... there is a very good possibility Zachary will be getting his own blog.
