My littlest nursling just celebrated her first birthday.  Fortunately her interest in nursing seems to be picking up a bit, which thrills me.  Her older sisters both nursed past their 3rd birthdays but I wasn't sure this one would hold on that long.  While I don't know what the future holds, I most certainly will do everything I can to keep her nursing for another year.

At her 12 month check up she weighed in at 16 lbs 14 oz, putting her at the 9th percentile.  She petite but she looks great (looks reasonably chubby), although I do think she's due for a growth spurt.  She's been walking for about 1 1/2 months, so I think that's one of the reasons her weight slowed down between and 9 and 12 months.  At any rate the doc thought she looked great.  

As always, thanks to all who take the time to post and respond on this wonderful board.  It's an amazing resource and source of support for women around the world.  You all are the best!
