05:57 am: Happy Blogoversary to Me!
I can't believe I've lasted a year... and have no desire to shut up yet. I'm glad I'm doing this; I hope Teddy will be.

A year later, and I'm still nursing, still not sleeping through the night, still completely in love with my son. I would never have thought I would end up doing extended breastfeeding -- no matter what WHO and Unicef recommend. But I dig it. And heaven knows Teddy digs it. If I ever have a moment of doubt, all I have to do is take off my shirt. Teddy's sheer delight at the prospect of nursing, and his enthusiasm at the process of nursing, are enough to keep me going for a while yet.

I mean, really, how cool is it to have someone laugh in pure glee at the notion of hangin' with me for a while?

Add the monkey baby hugs, the slurpy baby kisses, MAMAMAMA (yes, and truck truck truck bus bus bus shoes shoes and all the rest), and my life is pretty enviable.

Peter bought two pounds of mashed potatoes to eat with ribs last night. Two pounds. Would Teddy, Master of All Potatoes, eat any? Of course not. He wanted the meat from my ribs. The ribs that burned and had very little meat left. Of course. :sigh:

And meat gives him gas, so it was a really fun night. It's amazing the enormous sounds that tiny little body can make.
