I'm so thankful for these moments.

To be able to give the gift of nourishment that is perfecetly made for my babe. I am thankful that he was born without a cleft palate and that he has been able to breastfeed.

Nursing is a time of relaxations and peace for me. Our bodies release calming hormones when we breastfeed, I experience this every time I nurse Travis. When I am stressed or upset my first inclination is to nurse my baby. I am so thankful for God's amazing design...
... and for the pictures to remember this feeling.
Thank you Ruth!
