back!

8 Jan

Whoa!  The wind on the East Coast has been ridiculous!  I don’t think I’m a bad flyer, but the landings of both flights were a little anxiety-provoking.

Safe home now.  About to go get the suit cleaned for my LAST interview–the pants are a bit stained from snow and street salt.

I felt like I wanted to bring a little something back for the girls…but of course it didn’t occur to me until I was in the airport on the way home, and my days in Massachusetts were busy with interviewing and meeting babies (those of some of my favorite friends in Beantown).  I picked up a paperback copy of Make Way for Ducklings for Ari.  I felt so torn about something for Evie.  If I get something for one, I should get something for the other, but I feared John’s wrath if I spent $10 on a board book of Goodnight, Boston.

Then I remembered the 20 minutes I just spent in the family restroom at Boston Logan, and all the other times I pumped in public over the last two-and-a-half days:

I know my audience.

    Mom’s milk is the best!!!!!! Plus, go you for nursing and pumping even though you’ve been traveling and under stress!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while and never commented, but when I saw the pic of your pumped milk, I couldn’t resist! As a new mom and new pumper, I’m so impressed with how much milk is in those bottles! Awesome!

      Hi Rachel!

      You’re so kind, thank you! Not sure if this is true for everyone, but for me breastfeeding was 50x easier after the second kid: not nearly as uncomfortable in the first month; my milk came in much sooner; and I didn’t need to stress this time around about producing enough. I read that milk ducts proliferate with each pregnancy and breastfeeding, so maybe it’s supposed to be easier? Thanks so much for the encouragement!

      xoxo
