#6 is still breast feeding

She is after all the last one. I nursed #1 and 2 until 2 1/2 or so. She is down to a morning and evening nursing.

Have I ever mentioned the funny nursing story about #1? He was such a wiggler. We finally just got to the point we would put him to bed without nursing him, wait until he was asleep an hour or so and then nurse him because he would just get down to business and not climb on top of my head while trying to snack. Anyway, one night DH brought him in all sleepy and just as DH was putting him on the bed #1 says, "MMMMMMmmmMAMA!" That kid knew he was getting some milk and was excited about it.

When I was on bedrest last year I got nightgowns. They are sorta grannyish but when I had a 10 pound baby with an extra gallon and a half of amniotic fluid in my abdominal cavity anything with a waistband just hurt to wear. It hurt. So I have a couple nightgowns that have a placket opening with 5 buttons that I normally just keep the top button buttoned. #6 tonight got on my lap grabbed both sides of the placket pulled with all her might, popped the button of my nightgown, looked in at my breasts and yelled, "YAH!"

I think it was Mark Gungor that said breastfeeding is turning an erogenous zone into public utilities. Oh, so true.

Oh, that is hilarious!! That reminds me of my #5. The phrase "Milk does a body good" comes to mind!


The days are so different. Instead of mess and homeschool teaching I have a DH working from home and quiet until 2:54 when #6 (who is 10)...
