Even though Cassidy seems to be getting much better, she lost weight at her last doctor appointment. We are having to entice her to eat. I was giving her a bottle before her morning nap today and after a few minutes of her shaking her head telling me no, she started finally started drinking. I was praising her for being such a good baby until I noticed that she was indeed sucking the milk from the bottle and spitting it out the side of her mouth that I couldn’t see.
Seeing that my baby had deceived me for the first time I said, “You tricked me!” She laughed. So I put the bottle down and let her go to sleep.
Because, let’s face it: That brand of manipulation is hard work! It takes careful planning and detailed execution. And after all that, a girl’s got to get her beauty sleep!
