    Hello & Happy Holidays!
    After having just plowed through my own Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark and reading your post (6 weeks post weaning and God only knows how many pounds heavier!), I had to Google "Joe-Joe's". We don't have a Trader Joe's anywhere around, but maybe they do mail order?!?
    Enjoy your treats, enjoy that precious little Henry's face and keep nursing until the goodies are gone. I wish I would have planned a little more before I stopped! (...and where I am I going to put all of the clothes that have been piled up on the exercise bike?!?)

  5. I hear you! I am no longer nursing exclusively, but I have still managed to lose weight through the holiday so far...and that's saying something considering the amount of crap I have consumed!

  6. All this breastfeeding has really been great for fitting back into my clothes. I don't want to tell you how much crap I've been eating in the last few months, but between Halloween and Christmas, I should need a new wardrobe! I don't ever want to stop breastfeeding!

  7. Joe Joe's are good (ok, they're great), but try crushing them and adding them to melted white chocolate for the BEST Cookie Bark!

  8. Oh can Henry GET any cuter????

  9. I adore peppermint joe joes!! If only I had one still nursing to somehow make it alright. Enjoy it while it lasts!!

  10. oh, i hope I will be able to breastfed my new one. besides being good for him, I need to shed the almost 45 lbs I have alreadt gained plus the ten left over from my triplet pregnancy.

    what do you think the chances are that my 15 month olds will let me breastfeed. I'm not sure how they are going to react to our new addition - just three more weeks.

    i need to go back and read your posts. Henry is not on a schedule is he? we ran such a tight ship with our trio and it has paid off as they sleep and nap well and eat at regular times. But not sure if i want to or can even consider it with this one.

  11. Seriously, could he be any cuter?

  12. What a cutie ! and Amen - brilliant captions. My extended twin breastfeeding allows me these indulgences too - guilt free.People keep asking when I am going to wean them ... when they stop making chocolate
