A Week of First's

School started on Tuesday for Lindsey. The morning could have gone better but unfortunately it didn't. First of all, Lindsey was bitten by fire ants on Monday. Apparently she reacts very badly to bug bites. Her feet were swollen and red and very itchy. We coped as well as we could on Monday - no shoes on her feet and we were very careful not to touch them. Well, you have to wear shoes to school and that was a very bad thing. The shoes rubbed her bites and hurt. So that made her and everyone else getting ready miserable. I was able to get a pretty cute first day of school picture though. Notice her red feet and that she doesn't have her shoes on yet!
Another first that has happened this week is Reagan took her first bottle. We don't plan on using a bottle unless absolutely necessary but it is nice to know that she will take one. It did take a while to figure out the best position for Robert to hold her. She was not fooled when he was holding her cradle-like. She did not want the bottle. Then her put her down on his legs and she seemed to like it a bit better that way. Lindsey even got a chance to feed her. That was fun to see. She did a great job but lost interest quickly.
We also are very excited that Reagan is sleeping longer at night. (And, no, I do not have a picture of that.) She is going to bed around 10:30 or so and sleeping until 5:15ish. I know, not the longest night sleep that I have had but much better than before. This has happened twice so far. Keep your fingers crossed that it continues.
