Personal Dilemma

So I'm publicly admitting (and proudly) that I'm a breastfeeding Mom. Little Ella took to it awesome. I love the bonding experience. I love knowing I'm giving her the best nourishment possible.

With that being said...she WON'T take a bottle-not from me, not from anyone. I can't leave her side for more than 2 hours. I left her with Rich the other day and she SCREAMED for an hour. A date with the hubby can't be more than 2 hours. I was hoping to introduce formula so someone ELSE could feed her.

I'm looking for some advice here.
I've tried Dr Brown's bottles and Playtex Nursers with drop in liners.
What sippy cup should I try with her? I know that time is coming also!
What experience do you have on weaning?

An Alyson Design!

So on my last clippie creating kick, Alyson asked to "make" one. So I let her design one and I put it together for her. She wanted one with pink buttons and she wanted white ribbon on the clippie.
Cute, huh?

Happy Valentine's Day or as the hubby and I call it, Applebee's Day. 7 years ago today my husband laid his beloved Grandmother to rest and later that day, he met me. It all happened at the Bohemia, NY Applebee's. Each year, we revisit Applebee's to celebrate!

I Love You Richie!

I'm issuing a Crafty Challenge!

I have a plethora of toilet paper and paper towel tubes laying around. I figured I'd save them for SOMETHING and now I have NO idea what to do with them! My kids are young (3, 19 mths, and 4 mths) so the only thing they do with them is use them as spotting scopes (As Diego calls them).

Have you come up with something great?
Leave it here!
