Dedication Pictures

We totally forgot to take pictures of Westin in his dedication outfit. We got some as a family but just didn't take any of him by himself. So the next day I dressed him back up and had a little mini photo shoot. This one is my favorite:
He was too busy looking out the window to look at me.
Even though he couldn't look at me, he did give me a little smile.


And five minutes later.....
He was finished. It's hard work being cute!

I think I'm a first time commenter. Westin is so cute! I noticed that you were having trouble with the bottle. My daughter is breastfeeding her daughter, she's almost 7 months old now but we had a hard time getting her to take the bottle at first. I know how frustrating that can be. I saw that you got tons of advice. I didn't read through it all but I didn't see anything about the temperature of the bottle. My granddaughter has to have it WARM warm or she will not drink it. And she only likes the Playtex Nurser bottles with the inserts. I also second what everyone else has said about you not being around when he tries the bottle. They are smart little buggers. They know they can the real thing if they see and smell mom.

Good luck!
