what a gift

i've been thinking a lot about breastfeeding lately. i'm so enthralled at how amazing this gift from god really is. sometimes i still can't believe that i produce milk. and how awesome that it's designed specifically for amos. our milk is different and perfect for each individual child we give birth to. this milk is all he needs for a long time. we obviously get lots of comments on how huge he is already, and many are often shocked that i'm only breastfeeding him and not supplementing with anything else. i'm loving this NY times article right now, especially this quote: “It’s the oldest nutritional intervention known to our species, and it’s available to everybody..." god is good to know what we need, and the intricacies of the human body speak of his power.

p.s. if you live in OK and find yourself needing to defend your right to feed in public, here's a link to your legislation card.
