I’m too happy not to [over]share. Tho over-sharing is probably the very definition of a blog?! Hopefully if you didn’t want to see it the Post title gave you enough warning.

She did really well. She was calm. She sucked. She breathed. She may have swallowed a little. Speech pathologist happy. I am delirious. Tears, smiles, warm feeling of unimaginable happiness. I did feel all these things feeding J & D but I truly didn’t appreciate how lucky I was to have it all come naturally (eventually).

I’m holding Rose now, still and she is sticking her tongue right out of her mouth and looking to suck. I’m so proud of her! Amazing to keep that instinct intact after all she’s been through. Can’t wait until tomorrow when we get to have another go.


*Andrew was right.. If you put a common search item in title of your post (I’ve changed it from “The inevitable boob shot”. Your blog will go viral. Sorry to disappoint…
