Warning, may contain TMI
So I breastfed Kai until the beginning of November. So less than 3 months. I have been pumping exclusively since then. 9 months....9 months of pumping everyday. Setting the time aside to pump. And I work full time. At first it was 5 to 6 times a day. Now it is 1 or 2 times a day. At first I had to supplement with a little formula, then when he started eating cereal I had enough milk...more than enough. My fridge was full. As I started tapering off a little, I am now supplementing a little again. I don't feel too full if I pump twice a day now. Its really not all that bad. I am quite excited to stop having to set aside this time everyday. But in a way I'm a little sad. I'm sad because my baby is growing up! 4 days from today he turns ONE! Holy crap!! Its very surreal. Next monday is his 12 month appointment, so we'll get to see his stats, which I am excited for. He hasn't been to the Dr. since 6 months. His Dr. is my uncle, so he was like, "eh, he can skip his 9 month, he's doing good". The only thing I am worried about is his reflux. The medicine he's on helps quite a bit, but with how easily he still pukes, I am worried that if we take him off he'll get really bad again. :( I am a little excited to have him try cows milk though! I wonder what he'll think of that. We put his carseat facing forward yesterday for the first time. I konw its 5 days early...but hey...he's bigger than a lot of 1 year olds, so I figure he'll be fine. He likes it a lot, being able to see everything.
We're gearing up for his party, which will be next Saturday, the 21st. We're doing a fish theme, and my awesome friend, Amanda, is making the cakes (one for Kai and one for everyone!) It's going to be way fun! I'm so excited! I will definately be posting a bunch of pictures from it! This is the invite I made for the event!
And in addition, I have to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beautiful neice! Today she is 8 years old! We're doing a family celebration when she gets baptised! I can't beleive how old she is! WOW.
Happy Birthday "Gummy-cita"!!

I have a friend that is involved in a controversial situation. Rob asked me tonight, when we saw it on the news, how I felt about it. I will stand by this:
I am so proud of my best friend. She is an amazing person no matter what anyone else thinks. I have been friends with her since we were 12. Almost 20 years will give you an idea on someones character. While this may not be MY lifestyle choice, she is happy and I am SO immensely happy for her. I am looking forward to this show, "Sister Wives" on TLC in September! It will be interesting! ;)
