all 3 of my kids have been this way. i pureed food for dd1 & dd2 but they really didn't enjoy eating until about 8 or 9 months....when they could grab it & shove it in their mouths themselves. : and actually, ezra is just now starting to enjoy tasting things. up until today, he would grimace & spit out anything that came near his mouth. he turned a corner, though, and is now happily joining us in our strange mealtime rituals. he doesn't eat much....just a few bites of this & that. i was so diligent with giving the girls one thing at a time but that's gone out the window with ez. i suppose if he had a reaction to something i would start from scratch but so far so good. and it's amazing how fast they learn to maneuver the food in their mouths, isn't it? the first few bites of food he had he gagged but today he ate O's & bits of banana & avocado without issue. i love it!

As for the vet, I don't do vets unless I have to. They really are a rip-off.
I haven't tried a sippy & my milk. I will though. He'll take a bottle with liquid yogurt in it. I started the yogurt because of terrible yeast rash.

The vet said she thought Thug (our larger dog) has a skin infection which is why he's stinky. She gave me ($30!) a medicated shampoo. The active ingredients are miconazole nitrate & an anti-microbial. Back when Seamus was having yeast issues our beagle had yeast infections in his ears. We're apparenly yeasty up in here.

Anyway, I wanted to ask you-- Do you do heartworm preventative?

We don't, only because there have been no reported cases of heartworm in our area of the continent yet. My parents do (they use HeartGuardPlus I think), further east, and I would if we were out there for longer than 10 days a year with the dog. I considered giving it to him so he would be protected for the trip but tend to forget until it is too late, you have to give it at least 6 weeks prior to the possible exposure.

Do you think it's OK to give him whole milk yogurt or goats milk instead of pumped milk or when I'm gone the two days a week (~5 hours at a time) for school? He's not taking my pumped milk from me or Jason, but that could change when it's my mom. If it's only one or two feedings two days a week my gut says that two feedings of whole milk yogurt for an 8-12 month old won't negatively impact his health, but I worry that it's too unconventional.. .

I'm addicted to sim's castaway on wii right now.
J's addicted to the Simpsons game.
We're both blowing thru the third season of LOST on DVD. Holy crap that show is NUTS!!! I can't wait for the fourth season :

I haven't done heartguard for the last several years, and one of my dogs got parasites this fall. They were easily treated with heartguard.

If you aren't already taking probiotics, I'd consider adding them to everyone's food including the dogs'. They should help with yeast.

Happy New Year everyone!!
