Andi- Your girls are so cute!
Oh my gosh Andi- they have gotten so big!!! They are adorable:)For a book on feeding I recommend Child of Mine, feeding with love and good sense by Ellyn Satter. It is written by a nutritionist with over 20 years experience and she really knows what she is talking about- very no nonsense :D I don't follow her to the letter but it is great to know what is normal, what should I expect, etc. plus it takes you from birth through toddlerhood and early childhood.
Sorry I'm late to chime in on this but it looks like you got some good advice from the ladies. I don't really have any advise for her eating problems as I have the opposite problem wtih David. Not sure if it's boys or what but he constantly wants to eat and this has been going on since he started solids. He used to get up at night b/c he was hungry but I told him no more you eat during the day. This morning he got up at 6am b/c he was hungry.

Okay going to try to do personals since I have a few minutes with the small ones all playing together!
Christine, I've found that they vary how much they nurse once they get past 18 months or so.
Jess & Ash - thank you for the book recommendations for feeding... I went straight to amazon and ordered them both. :)
Christine & Ella - A good friend of ours (who used to be a nanny before she had her own kids) will be watching the girls for us while I'm working, until January, so I'll be taking them to her house. We're hoping we'll have found a nanny by January who can come to our home to make things a little easier. Hopefully by then we'll be ready for a "stranger" to be taking care of them.
