Well, I haven't been posting much because I've been having a lot of fun doing Family History. It's done wonders for my mood, which hasn't been so great lately.
We're also making progess on a couple of important child-rearing fronts. One of the biggest mistakes I made with Elizabeth was letting her get hooked on a bottle when I had to wean her to take meds for morning sickness. Not only that, but she was taking one to bed and for a nap...exactly what should be avoided! But I was sick and it would just be temporary. Yeah.
I'd just about gotten her off when I went into preterm labor and it all went downhill from there! But we've been adding more and more water to her bottles and for the past few days she's had nothing but water in the bottle! Hurray!
And Amelia and I are officially out of the recliner and into the bed. I never thought co-sleeping would be a victory for me (with Elizabeth that was a last resort) and I honestly sleep better in the recliner with fewer aches and pains, but she was just getting too big. Besides, this way I can sometimes slip away. Now I just have to find a way to put her down for naps...she's in my lap right now. Elizabeth throws a fit if I leave the room and wants to be right next to (pretty much on top off) Amelia if we lie down.
