Almost forgot the biggest milestone!

I almost forgot yesterday, our most proud milestone... we have made it to our goal of 6 months breastfeeding. It hasn't always been easy... but I was NOT willing to give up. Over the last 6 months some days it was exhausting (growth spurts) and some days rewarding... Some days I was overflowing with milk (thanks MMP and lactation cookies) and other days I felt like I had nothing... I am a HORRIBLE pumper... and what most people can pump in a sitting sometimes takes me 2 or 3 sessions just to get 5 ounces worth... but through all of this we kept going... and here we are - at our goal and still going strong.  I feel like it should be smooth sailing from here... *knock on wood* next goal... ONE YEAR!

  2. Congrats! That is quite an achievement! You can definitely make it to 1 year! I was 17 with my first and I shocked everyone by going 14 months. It is not easy, it is not always fun, but it is so worth it when you do get those loving adoring looks :)
