I got my 3 Month Achievement Ribbon!

There it is in all it's glory!
My 3 Month Achievement Ribbon for Breastfeeding.

I am so proud! Corbin is the first baby I have had that I have gotten to Breastfeed. It was really tough. Whoever said Breastfeeding was easy must have been a guy!

There were so many times during the first few weeks that I wanted to quit, but I stuck it out and I am glad to say that Corbin has not had a single bottle in nearly 2 months! I am doing so many things different with him. I am enjoying him so much. We are Cloth Diapering and Exclusively breastfeeding and I am just enjoying every minute of it. The picture on the right cracks me up because it looks almost like he is saying "I like them this big!"

This is what happens when you leave Caden alone in the room!
Caden thinks he too has Boobs to milk and Ry and Kassi are often found on the couch while I am nursing Corbin, with their babies under their shirts giving them their mommy milk!

Well My next goal is 6 months. Then I move up to a Garnet colored ribbon. I am not sure how long I am going to nurse Corbin, I guess as long as he wants. I am enjoying the time I get to spend with him when I am nursing him. Also because he is such a boobie baby he only wants me. Which is great most of the time. I mean Tom has Kassi and Caden so now I get my mommy's boy! I do feel bad for Tom though. He cannot really calm Corbin down and Cor does not like Tom holding him. Oh well I know he will grow out of that one sooner or later.
