Celebrating One Year!

Today is my ds's 1st birthday. . .it is hard to believe that my Matty is already 1! But it is also the anniversary of nursing him for a year. A complete year of yummy breast milk in his belly!

And we had a rough start. . .a couple weeks in the NICU had me on the verge of quitting because I loathe pumping and it was all I could do to keep my supply up!

So yes. . .I am patting myself on the back but also wanted to post this to encourage new mamas to hang in there! It is hard at first but you can do it!!!!

My little one today, getting into some mischief!

Yay! I'll be joining you in the 1 year club on Sunday. I'll add to the encouragement for new mommies -- sometimes at the beginning it sounded like 1 year was so long, but here it is come and (almost) gone already. It was so short!
