Glad to hear she is continuing to prosper. Once spring gets here you will see a big difference in her. Congrats on getting her to this point with your perseverance. Be careful about her getting too pushy as she doesn't know her own weight/size compared to you and can hurt you without ever meaning to. But I think you are realizing that. Always rub her from the side, never from the front and don't get into any pushing head butting type situations. And be a "good mamma" and if she gets too pushy, a serious "rap" on her nose is necessary. All kids need discipline and she does need to know her limits.

Mira will be 5 Months at the end of April. I have her now down to one bottle a day. She is very moo mad with me on that but I am working her down. By May she should be more adjusted and by the end of May she’ll be 6 Months and I’ll be cutting her down to 1 quart then eventually letting her loose of the bottle. I was told by my vet that this would be okay and to just make sure her grain intake keeps up. So yay! Progress!

Very good. Time sure does go by fast. Hard to believe she's just about 5 months old already.

You've done a good job with her. Keep up the good work. :)
