Sleeeeeeep! And first bottle feeding!

Last night I got more sleep than I've gotten in weeks, if not months. We decided that since James is getting close to 4 weeks old and breastfeeding is going well, he could have a bottle of expressed breastmilk in the mornings with dad and let mom sleep 6 hours in a row for the first time in a LOOOONG time.

We started out two nights ago just giving him the second half of the feeding by bottle in the evening, just to see how it goes. Eliot fed him his first bottle, and James was a champ... didn't even hesitate taking to the bottle. And the best part was he went back to breast just fine after that, so no nipple confusion here!

So this morning Eliot gave him a full feeding by bottle and I slept. And slept. And slept. Which was so necessary because I had only about 3 hours of combined sleep in the night before.

Here are some pics of his first bottle feeding:

And some other pics I love:

And there are more added to the "newborn" album in case you need more cuteness!

We are also thinking about taking James out for his first trip as a trial run for our big trek up to Mt Rainier next month... maybe to the beach this weekend or something. We'll see how things go in the next few days and play it by ear. :-)
