Lunch With Daddy!

(I know he's supposed to have my daddy's hairline, but does he not look just like Eddie in the picture above? That hairline makes me laugh!)
Well we had a new experience today! We finally tried out a bottle. I was a little nervous that he wouldn't show any interest in it at all. I became more nervous when James decided it was TIME TO EAT and Eddie wasn't home from his errands. I fixed a bottle and had it in the warmer when Eddie came running in the door. On the first try (his 11 am feeding) he ate right around 3 ounces. We have NO idea how much he typically eats in a feeding since I've been nursing exclusively. After we fed him we ran out for lunch and errands and thought he'd be pitching a fit to eat again around 2 pm. We finally woke him up at 2:30 to eat again! He ate 4.5 ounces this afternoon and that must've filled his little tummy right up because he STILL (at almost 4 hours later!) hasn't asked to eat. I guess I'm going to have to wake him up again! Hopefully we're starting to spread our eating times out a bit, but just when I think we've moved to every 4 hours, he's screaming at 2.5! Eddie enjoyed being able to partake in the feeding today and I'm thrilled that I'll be able to leave him for more than just 2-3 hours at a time! This also may make our holidays a lot less hectic - especially when I'm at someone else's house!
