I decided to give bottles a bit of a whirl this time around. We never really used them much, but I wanted to give other people a chance to feed Atti, and give myself the chance for a little freedom. Atticus was totally game! He chugged down his first bottle like an old pro and has never looked back since. Jeff or Grannie try to give him one every other day or so.
He is such a good and mellow little guy. He is full of smiles and coos these days, and does this adorable little half giggle that is sure to turn into a full blown laugh any day now. He loves his little "play gym" and happily hangs out on it, looking around and "exercising" for 20 minutes or so at a time. His only really fussy time, if you could even call it that, is in the evening before bed, but as long as I'm around to cuddle him close to the milk bar, he is content. He is regularly sleeping 7-8 hours at a stretch through the night, sometimes even a bit more. He is growing so fast- all this eating and sleeping sure bulks o boy up quick!
