Breastfeeding Vantage

One of the things I like most about breastfeeding is it gives me a view into Levi’s personality that no one else experiences.  When he’s hungry, he gets so excited when I sit down to feed him.  It’s really kind of funny!!  I realize babies don’t have much of a filter to guard their emotions.  He kicks and grunts and smiles and then hurriedly eats as fast as he can.  It’s cute.

He also takes breaks to play, laughs and laughs, checks to see if I’m watching him.  Then back to chow time.  

But it’s not just his cute daytime antics that I get to enjoy.  Some of the sweetest times are when he wakes up in the middle of the night or early in the morning and is still really sleepy.  When I pick him up out of his crib, he rests his head on my shoulder.  I can hear his little chest breathing in and out and him sucking on his fingers.  It’s dark and quiet and he’s sleepy and precious.  Simple moments to cherish.
