The W Family Chronicles

6 months ago…

Posted on: December 26, 2006

Just 6 short months ago, I was recovering from a c-section, among other things! Today C is 6 months old. I am amazed by him every day. Sometimes I wish I could slow time down and keep him at this age for a little longer.

He’s changed so much…


I am so proud of my accomplishments in breastfeeding thus far…6 months is such a short period of time compared to how long I’d like to nurse him. But I have already continued breastfeeding past a-silver-mom1.jpgthe average age that American women wean. I am determined to continue until he decides that he’s done. I want to give him a better start than J (who had almost no breastmilk due to his refusal to nurse from birth) and to give him the food that nature intended a baby to have. Perhaps he won’t develop asthma like his big brother. Maybe he won’t have the terrible allergies his brother has. Maybe he’ll be healthier overall! There’s just NO downside to breastfeeding as far as I can see.

I’ll leave you with a quote that I found:

While breastfeeding may not seem the right choice for every parent, it is the best choice for every baby. Amy Spangler, MN, RN, IBLC

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
