Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.
Monday, December 11, 2006It's funny how older siblings...even when still very young...ca learn how to help out with the whole "caring for baby" thing. While Nora just turned two last month and is one of those two year olds that doesn't talk...she's very observant and LOVES to help with Emmitt.
Usually that means bringing me a diaper, or throwing the dirty one away...but she seems to be getting the value of breastfeeding now too. :)
Yesterday afternoon two sets of aunts and uncles, my grandfather and my cousin were visiting, One aunt was holding Emmitt and he started his "I'm hungry" fuss. Nora immediately looked at me. I didn't get up right away, so she came over to me, looked at Emmitt and the tried to lift up my shirt. LOL
This morning, I got the pump out (since I've finally started pumping to donate milk) and while moving to turn it on, she grabbed the horns and held them up to my breasts. LOL
At least I'm making sure she grows up knowing how to pump and breastfeed. ;) I'm still waiting for the day that I catch her nursing a doll. I so very much want to be able to snap a picture of that.
