Hard to believe we are here... Especially when my very first thread on these forums was called "3 Weeks In and Close to Giving Up." I really did almost give up - almost every feeding for the first 6 weeks, really - but I wasn't willing to sacrifice the special bond I knew I could have with my baby girl. Even when she is running around the house with her make-believe "purse" or climbing onto the furniture, when she eventually makes it into my arms to nurse she is a tiny baby all over again. I was looking at videos from her first days and there was one where she was asleep in my arms after nursing. Today, on her birthday, when she fell asleep after nursing in my arms again, I stared at her face and realized that the view was the same. I'm so happy that we have made it to 1 year and I can't wait to see what's next!
Thanks for all of your support, llladies. I know I wouldn't be here without you.
