Dear Crissy

6 months

6 months

Kara turned 6-months-old today!

How could this ornery little thing be half-a-year old already? Wasn’t she just born yesterday?

This is also our 6-month breastfeeding milestone.

After my breastfeeding experience with Evan, I never thought I would be able to say that I nursed a baby for 6 months. We’re still going strong and I am really proud of that.

I love this little girl!

    Happy 1/2 birthday and happy six months BF. That was my goal with my youngest and we made it to 8 months before she self-weaned. Keep up the good work!

    Congrats on your sweet cute daughter’s 6 months! I applaud you for breastfeeding her for 6 months! I breastfed my son for 2 years! Breastfeeding is such a beneficial healthy benefit for the child! Good luck on another 6 months!

    Congrats on both milestones! My little girl turns 6 months on Monday which will be 6 months breastfeeding for us as well :-) I hear you on not knowing where the time has gone . . . Six moths ago I was bouncing on a yoga ball swering that I would be the first women in history to be pregnant forever!

    Wow! Happy 6 months, Kara! :) Great job with breastfeeding for this long. I didn’t breastfeed very long with my first two but I’m hopeful that when another baby comes along I can do better! :) Thanks!

    What a great picture of the two of you! She is precious. That dress is so adorable. Makes the girlie girl in me want to try one more time for a little girl ! Congrats on the 6 month milestone will breastfeeding! I tried with my last two boys but it was a battle I wasn’t going to win, if I wanted to stay sane. :) I am so happy it has been so successful for you this time around. You go mama & baby Kara! Happy 6 months!

      Hi Nicole, thanks! I understand the sanity thing… I told myself with Kara that while I wanted to make it work, it wouldn’t be at the sake of my own sanity! :) Thanks for stopping by!

    Congrats Crissy – that IS something to be proud of! Breastfeeding can be so hard at first but once you get it down and into a routine it becomes second nature. I’m so glad you hung in there and stuck with it this time. Kara is adorable!

    She is just the sweetest little soul ever! So is her Mommy! I had always wanted a girl but had 3 boys…I love them dearly of course and now I am too old for any more babies. You lucky lady! Out of my 3 children, I was only able to breastfeed to 7 months for my last son. I wish it could have been longer for all of them because I just loved that cuddly feeling that comes with breastfeeding. I remember it so vividly with their sweet little faces looking up at me so adoringly. Nothing better that that!

    Her 1/2 bday was on my daughters 3rd bday. It just goes by too fast. You blink your eyes and they are no longer little. I wish I could freeze time. As for breastfeeding you really should be proud that you are able to do it. Keep it up you are raising a beautiful little girl.
