Contented Cows Give Sweet Milk

"Oxytocin. . . which is released by the pituitary gland, is the hormone that stimulates the mother's letdown. . . This is a wonderful hormone that has a calming affect upon the mother. Every time the milk 'lets down' she experiences a feeling of relaxation and calm and sometimes sleepiness comes over her. God is good. When we do things His way, we get His benefits. He knows that mothers need this calming hormone and He has graciously provided it for us." --Nancy Campbell

I love that picture, love Nancy Campell and all of above rubies, and love love LOVE oxytocin! ;-)

I think those content sleepy uptopia moments is what I'll miss the most when our last daughter weans. It's a little piece of the comfort I felt when I snuggled with my mom and felt just so warm and safe as a little girl - there's nothing like it!

That must be what I'm thinking about when I day dream about breast feeding again. Only four more months to go!

Four more months, huh? Right through the summer. . . Don't envy you that.

Actually, I prefer being pregnant in the summer. I hated having to struggle into all of that winter gear with my first kid. I went the whole winter without tying my boot laces.

Ahhh. . . I guess I never had a pregnancy during a harsh winter. I was still not far along when we left Massachusetts. Other than that, we lived in places with mild winters.
