It's been almost 2 weeks and breastfeeding has gotten easier and easier. But I really am glad I had such on hand support and encouragement when I needed it. Being the first and only in my family since my grandmother to breastfeed is such a blessing. I feel so empowered as a mom and woman I only wish I could of done it with my previous 2.

It is empowering, after growing that baby in you, to keep growing it through your milk. :-) Love how the light is hitting you both, all angelic. :-)

It really is. And I feel so much more calm then I did with my other two. I was so exhausted and tired and stressed with them. I guess kinda a bit of baby blues but not enought to be depressed or anything. I have felt so much more rested calm and relaxed this time around. Even with the toddlers jumping around the house.

I can't remember what it's called but our bodies release a chemical that relaxes us and makes us happier/more calm.  It's awesome. I recently got fed up with my husband and I yelled I need a chemical high from dealing with you. He knew just what I meant and handed over the baby!  It's our running joke cause I miss drinking wine as my night cap on stress filled days!  I'm glad you are starting a beautiful tradition for your family!
