    Default TWO YEARS!!! We did it!

    I can't believe it! We made it to two years! And the end is nowhere in sight...he loves kikis! I'm probably as surprised as my relatives - I had no idea our nursing relationship would continue this long, but I'm thrilled. I honestly believe it is part of the reason he's such a happy, well-balanced little man. I had no deadline in mind when I started, I just took each day as it came.

    I'm happy to share this wonderfully good news in a week where I'm anxiously awaiting a second ultrasound after an inconclusive first u/s at 4 weeks. I guess I'm back to taking each day as it comes, right?

    I'd like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your support through endless issues, big and little, over the past couple of years. I could not have done this alone. The mamas here continually inspire me to make the changes in myself, my routine, my family and my parenting to try and be the best mother I can possibly be. Thank you.

    Happy Birthday to your LO and WOW, congratulations to you!! I used to think (not very long ago) that two was sooooo old to be nursing, but they get so much from it, don't they?

    Congratulations to you and your son! It's great that he still loves kikis (, what a cute name!) and so sweet that you're still there giving them to him. Good job, Mama!

    Thank you all for your kind words.

    Just writing to let you know we had the second ultrasound yesterday and saw baby in the uterus and heard (and saw) the heartbeat. It turns out I was not nearly as far along as I thought and there just wasn't anything to see last time. My cycle is irregular and I had some bleeding and we weren't sure whether it was a period, random spotting (I get a lot of that), implantation bleeding or something more sinister, so we couldn't tell how far along the pregnancy was. Turns out to be just over 6 weeks, due April 21st!
