Get used to it. It's the most natural form of food there is, and you either had it or had a synthetic version of it. Don't feel uncomfortable because the source is my body, not a factory. Don't hate on the fact that it's free, healthy, and available on demand. Recognize this is what my breasts are truly made for, not just for attraction. I'll never look at my body the same way again. And I'm sure anyone following me doesn't have a problem with this, but I still feel compelled to FINALLY share my own picture. Big veins and swelling, lots of late nights and wardrobe issues, I fed both of my children strictly breast for the first 6 months of their lives. And I'm finally weaning my 2 year old. It's been an incredible journey, really really hard a lot of the time, yet such a bonding experience and pretty incredible when you think about how a women's body can sustain life through her breasts. *My boobs will never be that big again, and I'm totally owning it!

I watched the days and weeks of #nationalbreastfeedingmonth (August) pass by, read lots of sweet posts and fully intended and desired to share something. But every time I tried I realized it’s a pretty heavy thing for me to weigh in on at the moment. It’s a lot to process: working on weaning my almost two year old while growing a new person with whom I hopefully will begin another beautiful journey of nourishing next spring. Before I got pregnant with #ourtinyrubyround2 , nursing Ella was one of my favorite parts of life. I was constantly brought to tears of thankfulness by the comfort she received and the bond we shared during those moments. And it breaks my heart a little bit (read...actually a lot) that the amazing privilege of carrying life again has taken a little of the untarnished sweetness away. Frankly, it’s no easy feat to have someone draining you from the outside AND the inside at the same time. 😣 But recently I was humbled by the thought that I’ve given my body as a constant and increasing sacrifice to my babies for almost 3 years now and even though it’s just a tiny picture, I’m reminded of how Christ laid down His body for me. It took Him suffering in flesh to bring healing to my soul. And those are the little lights in my tunnel that remind me there’s a purpose to the weakness of this season. The giving of myself until it seems there’s literally nothing else to give...and then waking up to give more another day. I know times of looking into Ella’s big blue eyes locked on mine, while my body does its mysterious and yet common work and her belly fills are ending. I know there will be tears from us both when it’s over. Hopefully she won’t be too hurt to see her beloved “Mmmellk” given to someone else soon. I guess there’s no perfect way to wrap this up other than, I just wanted to document some of the jumbled up, (probably mostly hormonally driven 😆) emotions and feelings swimming around in my heart. Motherhood really is is a tough battle...a wild ride...but also a very tremendous indescribable gift...and I’m feeling the weight of how much I love it and don’t deserve it a little extra today. 🤱🏼🤰🏼😭❤️ #darlingellajane 📷: @rachelclarkephoto😍✨
