Happy 4th of July!!!

We had a bit of cabin fever today, so we decided to take Izzy to the zoo. Now, I know, it's not much fun for her, but it was necessary for my sanity's sake to go, and it was surprisingly quiet there. I had expected it to be really busy, because it was a cool day, and it was a holiday. Guess everyone was busy with other holiday festivities. We had a nice time, and it was really great to get out for some fresh air. Plus, the cooler temperatures made the animals a bit more active than usual, which is always more fun. Here's a photo of Izzy and Joacim at the zoo...


Once we got home, I decided it was time to try a bottle. I wanted to wait until Izzy was fully established with breastfeeding (which she is), and I figured that it might be good to try it today since we have a long weekend. I had read a lot that it shouldn't be the mom giving the baby the bottle, as he/she might not take it, so I wanted to make sure that we would have some time to get her to take a bottle if we needed it. Luckily, Izzy doesn't seem to mind. She took right to it! I would only put an ounce in at a time because I didn't want to waste the breastmilk I had pumped, but I couldn't hardly even videotape the event before she had finished it and was wanting more!!! Thank goodness she's a good eater! Here's a little video of Joacim feeding Izzy for the first time...


I decided to try to start working on this whole photography thing again, and luckily I have a willing (okay, maybe unknowing) subject in Izzy. I LOVE taking pictures, and really wish I could be good enough to make a living at this, because it's something I truly enjoy. That will probably never happen, but I'd still like to get much better at taking photos. Here are a couple of Izzy from this week:

Miss Isabelle looks older already! Cutie Patutie!

Is that an animal print sleeper she has on at the zoo?
