E is five months old today, which means I have been exclusively pumping for FIVE. MONTHS.
I am so proud of myself for making it this far. Anyone who has pumped exclusively knows that it's hard work. It's inconvenient, and time consuming, and just all around a big huge pain in the patooty.
But it's so gratifying looking at E - now over TEN POUNDS more than he weighed at birth - and to know that it's all compliments of mommy's milk.
We'll see how pumping goes once I start school and have like, a life. I'm still hoping to make it to at least a year.. so here's to 7 more months as a slave to the pump!!!
