I received a special gift today!
My friend Elizabeth, and her daughter, made this beautiful sculpture of me (and William and Scott and David). She hasn't seen me in 5 years. It is an honor to be remembered pregnant, co-sleeping and nursing. I love the the whimsical mood and simplicity, yet shows so much detail about the love and humor in nursing older babies. (Just today I was asked if it's OK to nurse while pregnant. Yes! FYI-- I've nursed through two pregnancies!). I laughed when I saw how she placed the baby's hands on each sculpture. I like how my right hand is up by William's hands. Each image has a perfect latch! Really!When I set the statues on my shelf, they reminded me of a La Leche League meeting.
