There is an angled wall in his nursery that my friend made the perfect thing for. She gave me these paintings as a Mother's Day gift and they are very special.
Leah is a wonderful artist and took a profile shot of my 9 month pregnant belly and Westin's newborn profile and turned them into these amazing canvases.
I love how they are understated with muted colors and match his nursery perfectly.
This could be breaking news:
He sucked on his paci for the first time! It lasted about 10 minutes and I was so excited! Most mom's would prefer their baby didn't take a paci but I have been trying to get Westin to suck on one so he would be one step closer to sucking on a bottle. :) He wasn't interested in the sippy cup but we are going to keep trying. Now that he is actually sucking on his fingers and a paci, instead of just biting them, we may go back to trying a bottle. I absolutely LOVE nursing him and I'm so thankful that I can but if I stop to think about how he won't take a bottle sometimes I get a little panicky. Just being honest- sometimes I can feel a little stressed (and almost a tiny bit claustrophobic) to know I can't be away from him longer than 3 hours at the most. I wouldn't trade nursing for anything though! Just an occasional bottle would be nice. :) Thanks for everyone's tips too. We have tried pretty much all of them! I am confident one day he will just get it. Also when he starts eating solids I know they can be used to tie him over for an extra hour or two. I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
