Nino besh!

If you know me personally, you know that I'm a breastfeeding advocate. And, yes, I still nurse my almost 21 month old daughter. And she's a nino besh addict. Her 3rd word was "ninny" (our name for nursing). Several months ago she started asking for ninny fresh, or nino besh. Now that she has become a mommy to her doll (Sadie-Emma), she also feeds her baby nino besh. Frankly, it's quite interesting to nurse a toddler who is also nursing her doll (at the same time). If Punky is wearing an outfit that doesn't allow her access to her own nino besh, she will pull on it until we help her unsnap it so she can nurse.

This does not bother us at all. We are proud that she is imitating this natural, wonderful process. She's already nurturing her baby. So sweet!
