I’m not sure what it is exactly, but both of my girls think it’s funny when I nurse outside of the home. Abby thought it was hilarious when she threw the blanket off of me that time in the mall. And Lily? Well, she has Abby as an older sister.
A couple of weeks ago, the girls and I went out to eat with a family in our church. Towards the end of the meal, Lily was definitely getting hungry and needed to eat. So I grabbed my handy dandy nursing cover from the diaper bag and helped her get latched. No biggie, right?
Sure…until Abby decides that it’s fun to play peek-a-boo with her baby sister! And by peek-a-boo, I mean, “Let’s yank this silly nursing cover off of Mama so that I can see my sister!” I tried to keep the cover in place, but by that point Lily was getting the hang of the game and didn’t want to be under the cover either. When I tried to hold the cover down, Abby peeped at Lily from the top of the cover instead. The mama with me had breastfed her daughters, so she just laughed at the girls’ antics, and I couldn’t help but smile.
This experience did show me two things. One, my little Lily isn’t so little anymore! I have a feeling that we’ll be retiring the nursing cover before too long. *tear* Two, my girls are super close and the best of friends. At least some of the time.
