Awww, so sweet Colleen!:love So happy for you!:happytears
Something SO interesting is that all of a sudden he SEES Lola. He has ignored her since she was born. Almost completely. He held her once and I got pics but beyond that he barely even looked at her. Ever since he started nursing again, it's like he SEES her ykwim? He sits on my lap while I'm holding her and he touches her leg and smiles at her. He tries to look directly into her eyes and he smiles so big when she smiles at him. :love He's even hugging and kissing her. And it coincides with him nursing again and is usually when she is nursing or he wants to nurse that he becomes affectionate with her. :happytears Ugh! Anyhoo, I'm rambling now but I thought that was really interesting and wanted to share.
Colleen, everything about this is just a dream come true! :happytears I'm so happy for you and Silas AND Lola, that you all get to share this new awakening of relationship. I hope this does end up relieving a big portion of Silas' stress and lets him turn that energy toward making himself at home in his world and his body.
ETA: I just saw the pictures! :happytears :happytears :happytears
Thanks Teal! I really believe that it will help him. I have always thought that in the end a big part of his stress was that he weaned too soon. He was always a HUGE comfort nurser and then one day my milk was just gone. It wasn't fair to him. He was too young yet. He still needed nursing. Even Brandon thinks so too. Some kiddos do fine weaning before two but I think Silas really NEEDED to nurse longer. I just hope that this really does help him regulate a little. We'll see......
Such sweet pics! :love:happytears And :love for Silas "seeing" Lola! Now he's found a common interest with her. :lol
