We made it a year!

As of this Wednesday we will have successfully breastfed for one year, with only about 6 bottles in the first few months. My original goal was 3 months, then 6, and then it was we'll see after that. At 3 it was going smooth so 6 months seemed like it could work. Six months came and went and I didn't even realize it. Just wanted to share a little joy that we are feeling. There doesn't seem to be an end in sight yet as she is still nursing every 2-3 hours including 2-3 meals a day!

Re: We made it a year!

Especially my health! I've lost 45 lbs pre-preg weight, about 30 in the first 3 months. My blood pressure was 104/65 today when I went to the Dr, my sweet little boys gave me strep throat. Feeling better though. I have a history of high BP and heart trouble, so I'm really trying to stay healthy for me and my kiddos. The weight lose slowed waaaay down since about 6 months so now I'm actually having to "work" at loosing now. Congrats to everyone else for making it as far as they have too!
