Today, you are 12 weeks old and 3 days old! This is a little emotional for me, because your sister Yoshi was 12 weeks and 3 days old when I went back to work full-time and put her in day care. 12 weeks was also when she switched to formula instead of my milk.
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that I get to be home with you every day. I hated being away from your sister each day knowing that she was not where she needed to be. Before I had kids, I NEVER thought I would be one to want to be a stay at home mom, but it took just a few days of summer vacation (after 8 months of full time day care) with Yoshi to realize that I had to be home with her. I found a job working from home so I could do it!
You are just too delightful and too new for me to miss a second! I am also so proud we have made it this long nursing. With Yoshi, she both breastfed and got pumped milk for 6 weeks, and then I exclusively pumped for 6 weeks. It was rough. You are a pro-nurser and won’t even take a bottle if we try. This makes me so happy!
I am so in love with you and can’t wait to see what’s next for us!
