Feeding Time!

When it comes to nursing... Dinah is nothing like Eloise was.
She's a snacker.
2 Minutes here...
8 Minutes there...
3 Minutes a couple of hours later - and so on.
It really hasn't been a big deal, but we had her weight checked and
she had only gained 4.8 ounces in 2 weeks.
THAT is a big deal.
So, in an effort to try to get her to eat more...
because, well, she just doesn't seem to care to eat very often...
I pumped for a bottle...
And Eloise was more than happy to be a helper!!
(Although Dinah didn't really care for the bottle either - *sigh* )
Dinah has another weight check this Friday. 
We are praying that her weight has improved!
**On another note... Cory's dad has been doing well since his surgery!  Your prayers are appreciated!  We are so thankful that he has gotten through this!**

3 Months!

Dinah is 3 Months old today!
What a sweet, happy baby she is!!
(see my post from earlier today for Easter pics!)
Eloise went to her first (public) Easter Egg Hunt this past Saturday!  She had a lot of fun... even though all of the eggs were gone in a matter of a minute or two!  She did get 10 eggs though and shared the loot with her cousin!
If you saw my previous post, you could maybe tell that Eloise was not too fond of the Easter Bunny at the store.  Mommy had to stick right with her and she was shaking like a leaf!  She really liked the Easter Bunny that was at the Hunt on Saturday though!  She even gave him a kiss!
Easter morning was fun!
Eloise liked her Easter Basket!  She loves the Five Little Monkeys... so she got a couple of books and an audio CD to listen to the books in the car!  And also some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse figurines.  You can't really see them in her basket... but they are there... and she was thrilled!
Dinah got The Berenstain Bears Dolls and a Book!  I'm sure if she had any clue what was going on, she would have been pretty happy as well.  But regardless of Easter Baskets and presents... she's just a happy baby anyway!
Love our Girls!!
