A while ago

A while ago, when I was doing dishes after dinner and J was upstairs with the kids, J called to me, "Come upstairs quick! You have to see this!"

I grabbed a dishtowel and ran up the stairs. What do I see? My little man, sitting cross-legged on the floor with his blanket and bear on his lap.

When asked what he was doing, he responded: "I feedin my bear like Mommy."

I had no ideas about breastfeeding beforehand other than I knew I wanted to try. With Little J it didn't work and after pumping for 3 months I stopped and switched him over to formula. Obviously things went better with Baby K and obviously Little J has seen me feeding her enough to mimic it.

This is the kid who yells "Dad wanna run?!" as soon as we get upstairs after dinner so for him to take a time out and sit for a second and not just pant or grab a sip of water is amazing. It made me smile seeing him being so gentle with his bear. Eventually he's going to be a great father just like his dad.
