what a happy photo, full of life.
no blanket, no hooter-hider.

every time i try to write out what i'm feeling about nursing it just doesn't come out right and i go back and delete it. i can't quite seem to get across what i want to say. oh well i'll try again later.

Awesome. I love it.

Prior to having Lila, that pic would have semi-wigged me out.
Now, I get it.

So Lila had a, "well-baby" Dr.'s appt. today and I had pumped a bottle before we left because I had to go to work directly following the visit.

Craig started feeding her while we were there and the pediatrician asked what type of formula we were using. I was like, "That's breast milk." She then replied with, "Really?! It's so thick! Wow, I thought it was formula."

Um... I felt like I just won an Olympic gold medal.

Suh-weet. I love knowing that my Cupcake is existing, no flourishing, because of my breast milk.

I wonder if I can add that to my resume? "Successfully created and fed a small being..."

(sorry this is so long. I heart nursing.)

no, I totally feel you! I had no idea I would be so passionate about nursing.

when I pumped this morning at work I pumped 10 ounces in 10 minutes and I felt like a superstar- go boobs, go!

we are foods.

I believe we need, "We are food" shirts.

And I'd like to offer a hearty, "CONGRATS!" on the 10 ounces! That's awesome.

I wouldn't say this pictures wigs me out at all, but it is a little too much for me. I want to breastfeed. I plan on breastfeeding. And though I wouldn't flip out if I saw this live, in person, it kinda has that same feel to me that I'm not a fan of public displays of affection. I don't know. I'm happy people do it. I want to do it. But I'm not sure I want to share the experience with anyone publicly.

I heart the Gyllenhaals. I don't care for seeing boobs as a rule, but if this is the reason I'm seeing it, then I'll let it pass.

RE: Kylee's resume statement
I think putting birth and breastfeeding info on your resume can best describe your tenacity.

You go girls!!

two months ago this probably would have freaked me out. but i've kind of done a 180 on the whole thing now. i think if we have to watch victoria's secret commercials on cable during daytime tv seeing a woman feeding her baby shouldn't be a big deal. and britney spears and every other slutty teen idol out there. america is messed up. seriously!

Well, that's the part we know about ... the less pristine, positive parts of her life probably got edited ... mentioned only to keep everything in perspective ... still, absolutely glad for that picture.
