That’s my girl May 11, 2007

While we were shopping at the sale last night (more on our finds later), Ava found a toy workbench with lots of tools on it. Jody saw her lifting up her shirt and putting something on her chest. He wondered what she was doing, but didn’t think much of it. Later, she came over to me and said, “here’s some milk for Julian” handing me an invisible cup. Still later, she handed an invisible cup to our friend Dax to give to his baby Trajan.

I hadn’t seen her putting the tools to her chest and Jody didn’t hear her say it was milk for Julian (but did see her give the “milk” to Dax – which he “drank” himself, hehe), so it wasn’t until later that we were both talking about it that we put the pieces together and figured out she was “pumping milk” for the babies. πŸ™‚ Leave it to my girl to turn a workbench and tools into a breast pump. Love her!

By the way, the pumping for the milk bank is going better for me. I’ve taken your advice (thank you!) and pumped while nursing. It goes much faster that way. Oh, and I’ve been able to express more milk the past couple days, so it seems my supply is meeting the demand of pumping each day. I feel so fortunate that I can do this. πŸ™‚

    That is so beautiful. Both Natalie and Elle would pretend to nurse their babies and if you recall I had to fashion a sling for Elle’s babydoll when Anna Sofia came along. It’s nice to know we’re influencing our children with such positive behavior, right?

    I’m so glad the milk bank donating is going better. I’M SO PROUD OF YOU. What a wonderful gift you’re giving! xxoo

  4. LOL! That is too rich πŸ™‚

    And since I haven’t said it yet, good for you for pumping!

    Cute! Tim often says “his baby” needs milk when he sees me feeding. He lifts up his shirt to feed it.
