She was, however, more excited to chew on the new strap than to look at the animals.
I took these two before we left, when she was fresh. Good thing too, b/c Sophie can sweat. By the time we made it back to the car, her head was full of little sweat curls, cute and sad at the same time. At least I slathered her with sunblock this time, so not even a hint of a burn.
We went with an old friend of Dan's and her daughter who is 2. She gave me a fresh perspective on the whole bfing situation. Her daughter was born at 32 weeks and she was only able to bf about 3 months. For various reasons, she had to stop. She found a milk bank and supplemented with another women's breast milk until her daughter was 13 months old. Hearing her story really hit home for me, I guess. She had wanted to continue, but just couldn't. Now, I'm back on the bandwagon of NOT cutting back yet. I think that I will burn through what I have in the freezer, and take anything newly pumped to my parents house, to store in their deep freeze, so it will last longer.
