Today also marks six weeks of exclusive breastfeeding. Yup. Six weeks. This blog isn't about breastfeeding, or even babies really..except for mine obviously, it being my blog..but it is worth mentioning because these last six weeks have been some of the hardest of my life. I never thought I would reach four weeks at one point, let alone six. But with a lot of advice and encouragement from my friends on Twitter and from my fellow bloggers (Gretchen I am pointing at you!) I have made it to my initial six-week target. Now I am aiming for eight weeks and then...well, then we'll see. The main thing is I am feeling more positive about it. Now if I could just get some sleep things would really be looking up :)
I intend to review progress on the Big Happy blanket at the end of each month as we move through the year but I thought this little milestone would be a good time to have a look at how it's going so far...
Ten and a half rows, six colours...
Looking rather sunny and happy and, of course, big!
I have very little time to work on it, but I try to squeeze it in where I can. It cheers me to see the rows building up. Lillia chooses the next colour if she is about when I get to the end of a row, she is excited about all of us snuggling up underneath it when it is finished. So am I, I just keep picturing it months from now, finished, and a happy Future Me.
