    Default 2 years!!

    i'm still in shock that we have actually made it this far.

    when i was pregnant with DS, i told people that "i might TRY to breastfeed" or "i will probably breastfeed and feed formula". i was also under the misguided understanding that breastfeeding loses all value and becomes downright creepy after the first birthday.

    breastfeeding has opened my eyes in ways i never imagined possible. my child is so gentle and (usually ) well mannered and quite frankly, i think much of that was fostered with the "mothering through breastfeeding" approach i took with him. he is such a delightful boy. i am so happy to have been able to give him (and myself) this gift.

    Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies - Damn it, you've got to be kind. - Kurt Vonnegut
