This weekend we gave Amelia her first bottle, it was a truly amusing experience. As is normal for her she was howling with hunger when I presented her with the bottle. She howled even louder because the bottle was not what she wanted, then I squeezed the nipple so a little milk shot it to her mouth, the look of shock on her face was priceless. To her the idea that milk could come from somewhere other than mommy was totally mind blowing. It was fun to watch her try to process this new development.

Berkeley & Amelia
One of things that we most worried about before bringing Amelia home was how the dogs we react to her, we need not of worried. The dogs love Amelia. They took to her almost instantly. Zack is thrilled to have a new purpose in life, protecting Amelia.
One can almost always find Zack positioned very near where Amelia is sleeping keeping watchful eye over her. The minute she starts fussing he goes crashing though the house to find us to let us know about it. He is just so thrilled to have some to protect. Berkeley has always lacked a protective instinct, but she does like to be as near to Amelia as she can.
Though they have been thus far foiled by the diaper vault, the dogs are present at every diaper changing, just waiting for that one time that the diaper gets improperly placed in the vault. There two favorite things to eat are poop and paper products, there could be little else as appealing to them as combo of there two favorite snack items.
