As most of you know Jack has never held his bottle. He is quite capable as you will see in these pictures but has never had the desire to. He would rather have someone else do it and Jack always gets what Jack wants. Sunday we were running late to church as usual and I asked Brandon to pack the diaper bag while I finished dressing Jack. Before I go into any more detail let me explain that I have completely gotten Jack off of the bottle and onto sippy cups except for his bedtime bottle in the past 2 weeks. I told him to make sure that he put a sippy cup with milk and a bib for our lunch after church. You can tell from these pictures that neither of those things got packed. I put the bottle on the table in front of him and thought surely if he wants it bad enough he will pick it up and drink from it. Well after about 5 minutes of staring at it this is how he drank from the bottle. I was sooo embarrased, but it was hysterical. After a while of drinking it with it lying on the table and it getting very difficult to get anything out of it, he started doing this. This proves that he could have held a bottle over the past year but had no desire to and I was a sucker and held it for him. I am so glad to be done with these bottles for the most part.
This is the make shift bib that my sister came up with so that he didn't get food all over his church clothes. It is the napkin from the restaurant. Brandon said that if I wouldn't put him in girly clothes with big collars we wouldn't have that problem, but I disagree. This is another one of the precious oufits that my Grandma made him.
