    Great Story Jen! He was beautiful at birth and now. So glad you made it past your first goal! And it's neat when they stop and then still do a while later. So you get a chance to really appreciate it. Congratulations to making the journey!

    Way too lazy for formula

    Thank you for the story. (I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes)
    Sometimes we all need to hear that its ok to let it ride and go with the flow. We may have people around us trying to instill their opinions about when the baby should wean and its just really nice to hear your awesome story. I hope mine is similar.
    My son has also never tasted formula and still nurses A LOT at almost 18 months.
    Thanks thanks thanks for inspiration to keep going...

    Thank you for sharing your journey here with all of us. You are an amazing mother who did exactly what was right for your son and your family. There can be so many pressures, speculation and lack of understanding when a child nurses for an extended time. Your son has reaped the benefit of your loving mothering and your breastfeeding relationship.
