We had a wonderful thanksgiving. Gigi came to town, Aunt Kayla and her new husband visited, and we got to talk to Papa on Skype. Madeline had everyone say what they were thankful for and her list included family but also toys and Santa...oh the fun of three year olds! Benjamin LOVED his food and cleaned his plate fast. All in all a blessed day. We also joined in the black Friday fun both at midnight and 6am. Target was by far the worst. The line to check out wrapped the store...twice. I hope to post some photos soon and can't wait to get to work decorating for Christmas!

Well, my little man is a big boy now. Yesterday was his last day breastfeeding. These time around it's been a totally different process. He started on whole milk around September 12th and started the self weaning process. With Madeline it was more controlled because I was pumping the whole time. It's been even more emotional for me with Benjamin since he was actually nursing. It was a special experience that while I enjoy the freedom I will miss greatly...I'm not ready for him to grow up so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was holding him for the first time; and now, he is crawling all over, babbling up a storm, and working toward walking. Time flies! I am enjoying that though he is not nursing, he is still my little snuggle bunny when he gets sleepy. I will cherish this because one day all too soon that won't be "cool" anymore.
