This is why you do it

He knows who you are talking about when you say mama or dada, and he gets excited.
He grins, chatters, and flaps his arms when you get home.  He waves goodbye to daycare as soon as you set foot in the door.
When he does something new, his eyes seek out yours for approval and recognition.
He wakes up from a nap and reaches for you…when you pick him up, he lays his head on your heart.
When you put him to your breast, his eyes glaze over with bliss as his body relaxes in your arms.
You hug him tight as he falls asleep and breathe in warmth, milk, and love.

  1. Hi! Just found your blog through Jen’s Lactivist blog, and am really enjoying it. This post was really sweet!

    Also nice to hear at least a little about breastfeeding and PCOS, which I find a lot of people don’t know much about. I’m a lactation consultant and when I bring it up with moms they always tell me that no one had told them that there was any connection…

    Anyway, nice to discover your blog!
