I love fall in Vermont!

Samantha is starting to try to reach her toys and hold on to them. She doesn't quite have the control yet and she's pretty vocal when she gets frustrated. Even still, Samantha is such an easy baby. She's very mellow and smiles easily. She loves watching Dominic and talking away.
Unfortunately we did not win the powerball so I had to go back to work. It wasn't any easier than the first time and I was very glad to get home at the end of the day. They did great with daddy though and thankfully we learned the trick to get Samantha to take a bottle. Latex nipples! Thanks to a tip from Shauna we tried it out and it worked. Phew! Mommy was getting VERY nervous when after 4 bottles and only one week left before work and Samantha was still refusing the bottle. We bought a latex nipple, put it on the bottle and braced ourselves for the inevitable crying. To our surprise (and relief) she started sucking, drank two ounces and fell asleep!
