We are just under 2 weeks from officially being here and I just couldn't resist sharing dd's burgeoning vocabulary especially with what happened last night. Lots of words suddenly came bursting out literally in the last week, from bee and owie to duck...but then the most wonderful thing happened at bedtime last night. DH read to her and brought her upstairs to nurse before sleep, she sat waiting on our bed for me and as I layed down, she patted by breast, smiled and said "boobie". It continued all today too. I have no idea why, but it made my heart so full of joy and love and I teared up so much. It was the kind of moment that gets imprinted in your mind forever. Maybe because I see how much value our breastfeeding relationship has brought to both of us, this one word means so much to me to be heard aloud.
Although I had been trying to encourage the word "milk"--thinking ahead of a toddler pulling my shirt saying "boobie", I'm just so thrilled to be joining the beyond one club.....let the "boobie, boobie, boobie" fest commence
