the good life

Elodie will be six months old in April and we are still breastfeeding and loving it. I plan on breastfeeding her as long as she wants.  That means, if she is two years old and still wants to breastfeed, I will definitely let her.  We are slowly beginning to introduce a solid food every evening and she eats as much of it as she wants.  After she finishes eating the amount of food she wants, I will bring her to my breast and she will drink for a while.  As far as 'solids' go, so far she has tried and liked pear, banana, carrott (loves them) and didn't like avocado and pumpkin.  We have a food processer and are making all of her food organic and fresh with none of those bad preservatives or pesticides !!!!  I have been reading a lot about 'baby led weaning' and would really like to try this approach. 

Being a mom is more wonderful than words.  There is something so amazing about getting to help assist this little girl into becoming an amazing person.  Afterhaving Elodie, I definitely know that being a mother all I want to do and be.  To have a family and create amazing memories together.
Life is basically amazing...
