Breastfeeding 101

My kids have taken quite the interest in observing...and asking LOTS of questions...while I feed Micaiah.  It is quite the experience for them=)

Here are some interesting things that have come from our Q&A sessions:

Areyna:  "Mommy, I want to feed Micaiah."
Me:  "Well baby, I don't have a bottle ready for you to feed him this time."
Areyna:  "No I mean from my boobies."
I then had to explain that God didn't give her milk in her boobies yet.  She has to have a baby first=)

Zeke:  "Mommy, do you have any cookies in there for Micaiah?"
Clearly cookies and milk are supposed to go together!

Pumping has been an interesting phenomenon for them as well.  They look on, wide-eyed every time I get the contraption out.  

Areyna cheers me on every ounce of the way.  She must know that pumping doesn't come so easy for every mommy=) 

Zeke just watches in wonder and curiosity.  He also says things like "Why are you doing that to your belly button?"  Yeah, he gets those 2 body parts confused sometimes=)

Have you had any "fun" experiences with siblings like this?
