    Default Makes me laugh!

    So my almost 1-year-old DD has decided that the num-num's are self serve! She has almost completely stopped signing "milk" and just booby dives when she wants to breastfeed! She tugs at my neckline or tries to lift my shirt and just gets so annoyed if I don't immediately fix it! I honestly, truly don't mind and will always let her breastfeed if I can, I just think it's adorable. I try to get her to "use her words" (sign), and I'm very gentle with reminding her that she does know how to ask nicely, but at the same time I'm chuckling or laughing out loud at how she is developing the ability to affect her environment and be so independent.

    Just had to share. <3

    It's so cute to see how much they grow and appreciate BF

    I always get all because I remember when she was a little baby and I had to latch her on. Now she just helps herself.

    I think the funniest part is when we go to bed at night and I have to "endure" (gladly) the 10-60 minutes of "this side" no "that side" no "that side" no "I want to lay on your arm" no "I want to lay on your belly" no "I want to snuggle" no "I want to lay over there" no "I want to..." And she just wriggles like a squirmy kitten for up to an hour and I have to just adjust or lay still and wait until she goes from wriggling to dreaming with almost no noticeable transition.

    When my dd is ready for bed she says "attack mommy". She likes to "attack" (latch on) while I'm getting up to turn the lights off. Then she nurses on one side for a couple minutes and then the top side she nurses half sitting up laying on me and that's where she falls asleep

    Every new stage is a delight, even as I mourn the ones that have passed.
