Our week...

This week has been an emotional one. Basically this issue is that I had to realize that in order for the babies to get enough food to sustain them through the night, I was going to have to give them some bottles. Our beloved pediatrician talked with me for a long time and made me feel better for the time that I've made it nursing, and helped me feel less guilty.

We know feed them cereal three times a day, and have just started adding veggies to the mix. They've had peas so far, and they both think that they taste fabulous! Elsie is a better eater than Elias simply because she knows how to manipulate the food with her tongue better than Eli, and he spits out so much in the process. But he sure has fun!

Here are some pictures from this week's feeding times. You may notice that Elsie isn't as dirty as Eli. Eli has a bad habit of pulling his bib over his head, which gets baby food all over his face. Elsie on the other hand doesn't like to touch the food with her hands, and fusses when she gets cereal on her fingers. Therefore, she's learned to keep her hands folded under her bib to keep them from being dirty.

I can't believe how different these two are!

Oh! And those Bumbo seats are FABULOUS! Emily says, "Let's get those babies sitting in the Dumbos!"

Here is the rest of our week in photos!

So what do you think Mom's gonna feed us this time?"

Mr. Amazing!

This is where I put the twins so I can made dinner. I can see them, they can see me... we're all happy!

Elsie has just figure out that if she jumps, the music and lights go off. It was kinda a big deal!

And finally, here is another Mr. Amazing shown here cleaning out a yucky diaper. Thank God for fabulous husbands!

Malisa, I understand the guilt, and my doctor helped me realize that I didn't need to feel that way and there is nothing wrong with formula. As long as your little ones are doing well and getting enough to eat, then you are doing a good job. To have nursed as long and as exclusively as you've done is quite a feat and you should be proud of that.

I can't believe how big they are now! Just wait until they are both starting to crawl. One will go to your right while the other will want to venture to your left... and soon you'll have a new game... chasing after them. They both look so cute in their bumbo seats. Mr. Jude is probably going to be graduating to his high chair real soon. He has recently discovered that if he stretches back he can almost maneuver out of his seat in order to escape and crawl around. :)
