Today also marks 6 months of breastfeeding. I've been congratulated about it, worth celebrating because it blows all my previous experiences out of the water. But, I feel weird celebrating something that is perfectly natural. Same as I did after my VBAC's - I felt weird being all jolly and all "wow, I did something amazing, I had a natural birth after 2 c-sections". Because all I did was something that happens every single day all over the world. I'm not special, I'm not amazing, or strong or any other cool stuff - I'm just doing what heaps of other women do. All the time. All over the world.
I think its sort of sad that these things have to be "celebrated" and its far from the norm of society. So today is a bittersweet celebration, I acknowledge what has been achieved, and I'm proud of that, just wish it didn't have to be "celebrated" - you know?
Anyway - here's to 6 months Baby!
And here's my chicken - comes complete with dimples.
