baby girl's mothering skills abound
Since giving birth and then subsequently nursing the third (and FINAL hallelujah!) child baby girl has noticed that she too has, ahem, mammary glands. The boy simply asked me what I was doing the first time he saw me feeding the baby was satisfied with the answer. He has since moved on to more pressing concerns like if transformers can turn into logs or not. While baby girl was very concerned about what exactly I was doing. I explained I was feeding the baby Mommy Milk so she has decided to nurse her baby dolls right along with me. She has a brood to feed so she carefully selects which one she will feed, puts the boppy on her lap and proceeds to feed the baby out of her belly button. Now I know that she understands that Mommy Milk comes out someplace higher. But she also has learned this week that Mommy Milk requires one to actually be A mommy and to have had a baby in one's tummy so she is unable to nurse from the "traditional area" but from instead her belly button. She is practicing her critical thinking skills.
