Many of us could probably do this, if we were lactating and had enough caloric intake.  But how many police officers even think to breastfeed nine children of other people, even in a disaster?

As of yesterday, Limelet's 20-month birthday, I would say he officially began his vocabulary explosion.  He started repeating words after one exposure, including cards (cahds), bubbles (bolbols), berries (bouries), and signs for several words, including blocks and game (which, actually, I forgot I showed him the other night).

Having been away from Limelet for almost two days, I can say that he drinks a lot more nursie milk than I thought.  I brought the pump, thank goodness, but still experienced a lot of engorgement and soreness--think I have a bit of mastitis today, in fact.  The pump hurts to use and hardly gets out anything compared to a baby.  And when my flight was delayed for several hours in the middle of the night, I had to pump in a bathroom stall at the airport, which is not fun at all.  I was so grateful to climb into bed at 3 am and allow him to nurse.  Even in his sleep he was obviously very happy to have the nursies (and me) back, too.
