Today the March photo-a-day prompt was A Sign and I knew exactly what I wanted to capture.
Blake has been giving me a sign and asking for “Milk” for about a month now and it is just the sweetest thing. He points to my chest like in the photo below so I ask him if he wants “Milk”, and he says “Mmm, Muk” with this pleading look in his eye. I then proceed to breastfeed him and he is so happy.
I am incredibly grateful to still be breatsfeeding my little man into toddlerhood. I am sure some of you will get sick of me talking about it and saying how wonderful it is (although it does have it’s challenging moments of-course) but truly, I am proud. I am proud I followed my heart and my instincts. I am proud that I researched the heck out of breastfeeding, the how’s and the why’s and overcame my fears. I am proud that I didn’t let my bad experience with Hannah determine my future breastfeeding relationships and that I let go of my guilt in order to fully accept a new experience with my new baby. I will always wish I could have experienced this with Hannah but I know if I hadn’t had that time with her then I wouldn’t be the person I am today with the knowledge that I have. Everything happens for a reason.
