    Congrats and Happy Birthday to Emily!

    Your post made me tear up! They do grow up fast but toddler-hood, through exhausting, is sooooo much fun!

    Kelly!!!
    WHy did it feel like you were signing my Bfing yearbook??? Why do I want to cry right now?? It almost felt like you were leaving!! Please tell me she still feels and looks like a baby!!!

    Congratulations on this incredible milestone. We are so proud. And now as you walk thru the valley of "Extended Breastfeeding" come back and tell us of the road that lies ahead! I can't wait until she names your boobs and talks to them and starts nursing her dolls!!! The best is yet to come. Let the good times roll!

    Happy Birthday Emily!

    We love you.

    Yay Kelly and Emily! I loved the post also. My DD just turned 1 recently also, and our BFing relationship gets sweeter all the time.
    You should be very proud!

    1. What a big girl. I wasn't ready. All of those mamas that told me that the years go by so fast. I wished it woudln't really happen that way. That I could stop time and keep that baby smelling head snuggled up next to me forever. And then I see her fiercly independent little smile. She throws her head back and giggles, puts her arms around her dog. She's growing up. Up and in to a wonderful little person.

    Thank you. To each and everyone of you wonderful women that has helped and encourage myself and so many others on these boards. My breastfeeding relationship with Emily has made the last year that much more special to us both.

    Here's hoping we can keep on keeping on... we'll wean before she goes to college. Unless she stays in state... and really, North Carolina has a lot of great schools....

    Thanks, again. Happy Birthday, Baby.
    OMG (as I wipe the tears away, aren't these hormones fun) that is too sweet, my dd b-day is right around the corner and you are so right, it went by way to fast. Happy Birthday!!!!

    Congratulations!!! How wonderful!
    I love reading the messages in this forum. It keeps me motivated to keep
    going, pumping, breastfeeding in the middle of the night...

    I really want to breastfeed for two years but people are telling me it's not possible because I work fulltime (40-50hours/week).

    Has anyone worked fulltime and breastfed their child until 2 years of age?
    It makes me sad to think I may not be able to do it because I work.
