Monday Milestones

We achieved two things today - first, Piper started using a pacifier!

P2281152

This has been a struggle - we went through 5 brands before we found two that she wouldn't choke on (the Nuk 0+ size and the Tommy Tippee Newborn small size). Here's to hoping she learns to self-soothe soon!

Secondly, Piper had her first bottle today, courtesy of Willow!

I had a dentist appointment thgis afternoon and my mother-in-law babysat Piper. Piper's nursing schedule is still erratic (i.e., on demand), so I pumped enough for a small bottle this morning. However, Piper slept the entire time at Grandma's (despite getting a tongue bath from the dog!), so she never used the bottle. Willow begged to be the one to give Piper the bottle - and she did a great job of it!

The two of them are so cute! I'm going to have to try those two brands of pacifiers - The Boy is choking on them, too.

Great milestones. Cute little baby hands. I bet she smells great.

They look so cute together. I can see she loves being a big sister.

Adorable! So lucky with the paci. My boys wouldn't take them, so I had to wait til they were 3 months til they could get their thumbs (which they both still self-soothe with!).
