breastfeeding | the first week she was born, i actually said to myself, "if i make it a month i will be proud". now...i have to say i'm loving it. is pumping at work twice a day a little taxing? yes. but here are some benefits i've found [aside from the normal/obvious ones].
-- while it is time consuming, i get to "check out" for 15 min. two times a day and
-- i get to hang with my tiny lady while jake does other things like dishes and laundry, you know...because "i'm tied up at the moment"
-- i get to be the last to kiss her goodnight
-- easy on the wallet
-- easy on the waistline [i may nurse forever for this reason alone, as i still eat like i'm pregnant]
-- i have an excuse to eat an extra 500 calories a day
