Today the boys are 6 months corrected (6 months past their due date). The real feat of this day is that I have made it this far pumping! I can remember when the boys were around 4 months old (1 month corrected) and one of the neonatologists was commending me on still pumping. She had said to me that if it was at all possible I should try to make it to 6 months corrected before I stopped pumping. At the time that seemed soooo far in the future, but at the same time, I felt it was my job so I was going to do my best.
So here we are, on that day, and I have made it to my initial goal. It feels good! Well actually no, it doesn't, we all know I hate the pump, but it feels great to know that I have soldiered through something I dislike that much to make it to my own personal milestone.
Next milestone - end of 2010, making the boys 14 months/11 months corrected. If I make it that far, that calls for some serious drinks on New Years Eve!
