Chase is 15 weeks old today, and I have officially been a working mother for 3 weeks now. It's hard to leave him every morning, but he loves spending his days with Brett. We only have one BIG problem...he still won't take a bottle! We've tried pretty much every brand there is, multiple times a day, for the last several weeks and he just doesn't want it. I'd welcome any advice anyone has although I have to warn you, even our pediatrician and a feeding specialist are out of ideas for us! For now Brett gets the fun job of driving Chase across town everyday at lunch time so that I can feed him. Thankfully I have an office that makes that possible, and Chase is still gaining weight and seems pretty happy despite missing a couple of meals. In the last week or two he has learned lots of new tricks. It seems like he became a different, more mobile baby overnight! He now loves to grab (and sometimes chew on) his toes, roll over both ways, prop himself up on his forearms and look around, and even do a sort of army crawl/scoot manuever to move short distances on the floor. We definitely have to keep our eyes on him now, because within seconds of laying him on the floor he is flipped over and facing a different direction. He is so much fun to be around, and we love his cute smiles and coos, and watching him figure out just how strong he is. Watch out world, this little guy is on the move!
