Now we can add drinking from a bottle to Staley's ever-growing resume of skills. Next we're going to work on Staley's ability to keep her socks on.

Staley loves to eat. From birth, eating is something that she has done well. Zach is very involved in all aspects of Staley's life, so he was anxious to be able to help with her feeding as well. I had been warned by more than one person that waiting too long to introduce a bottle to Staley could result in a difficult transition or even refusal to take a bottle, thus being detrimental to my eventual return to work as well as our social life. With Staley's feeding routine well established, we decided that it was time to try giving her one feeding by bottle each day. So this week, on Staley's 4-week birthday, Zach got to participate in Staley's most favorite activity. And after a quick initial learning curve, Zach and Staley both got the hang of it.
