Our Breastfeeding Journey – International Breastfeeding Week

Our breastfeeding journey started on May 13, 2016 after 22 hours of labor.

Happy First Birthday Charlotte!

Dear Charlotte Rose,

I know I only ever call you that when you’re in trouble, but for today I want to call you by your birth name. Today is your first birthday and I’ve never ever had so many mixed emotions like this before. I’m happy and sad and mad all at the same time. Happy that it’s your very first birthday and so proud that me and your dad didn’t completely ruin you yet. Sad that it’s your first birthday and this time has come and gone so fast. I’m mad because you need to stop growing up, stay a little kid for forever please!
