Baby Wrangler

Look at that big girl!  I feel like I'm nursing a toddler sometimes!  She is so big and strong, she kicks her legs and flails her arms when she nurses (see above :).  It's pretty cute, actually, though it takes some baby-wrangling to get her to nurse when we're out and about these days.  In this photo we were at a little cafe where we had coffee and a snack after going to the zoo on Saturday.  She was doing so well (she must have been hungry!), I had hubby take a picture.  It's funny how nursing changes -- when she was tiny, Eliza was so calm (well, usually), and focused on nursing.  Now, she still looooooves it just as much, but sometimes she thinks she has more interesting things to do or see, so she makes it quick and gets back to playing.  

I love this milk-lovin' babe and I still love nursing her just as much (if not more!) than the day she was born.  I hope I get to continue doing it for a long while!

Kaua squirms a bunch when I'm nursing too. He'll pull off to look around and arch his back and crane his neck and the go back on like a million times, leaving my boobie exposed to everyone sitting around me all the time! It drives me bananas!
