Ok. Here it is! Yes. The one you were waiting for. :~D The one I drew in response to the stunning review (to be found here http://www.livejournal.com/users/leelastarsky/31513.html ) that I got for the Harry, Ginny and baby pic. I don't think this is Harry and Ginny; I prefer to think of it as James, Harry and Lily.
It's just a sketch, but if you wait for me to finish it you might not see it for months. :~P

Oh, and yes, I've drawn on personal experience for this pic. I breastfed 4 children. :~D

I love it!

My son was a real nipple-twiddler too.

My kids were all very posessive of my boobs, so of course their Dad would tease them by threatening to suck on the other one, which would then turn into something of a game. That foot in the pic above would quickly be used to push Daddy away by kicking him in the face. Daddy would then throw himself melodramatically away, which bub would think was the funniest thing ever. :~P You know how they LOVE thinking they've hurt you. ;~)

It's beautiful! God you're so talented.
It does look more like a Lily/James/Harry to me.

So that's what they do with the free boob? Brrr.... Mine was Materna-fed all the way thankyouverymuch.

Materna-fed? What's that, if you don't mind me asking?

Glad you like the pic. :~D

Actually, I think this is a great pic -- I adore the cheeky grin on baby Harry! :D
5th-Oct-2004 05:34 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yes, once they get past 6months they're very easily distracted and tend to twist their head in every direction cos they're afraid of missing something. Of course, they don't let go of the nipple while they do this. ;~P
5th-Oct-2004 05:50 am (UTC)
eee! So cute, I love the cheeky grin on Harry's face as well!
5th-Oct-2004 06:28 am (UTC)
Thanks! :~)

Oh I could drown in the cuteness and the boobyness. That is definately about a 9 month baby, yanking on the nipple while he takes his sweet time eating and watching everything. I am going to show this pic to my la leache group if you don't mind. I don't know why people concider nursing to be discusting. Thats what them boobs are there for!
5th-Oct-2004 06:25 am (UTC)
I certainly don't mind if you show your group. What sort of group is it? Ante-Natal?
5th-Oct-2004 07:51 am (UTC)
i cannot tolerate this cuteness *squirming in chair* AWGHG SOSadorablehger. the babies face. harrys face. Aaghh <3
5th-Oct-2004 07:57 am (UTC)
Thanks! :~) (James's face btw ;~) )
5th-Oct-2004 09:35 am (UTC)
O.o; Oddly enough, the thought that hit me when I first saw this wasn't James/Lily with Harry but Arthur/Molly and one of their many children. The guy has some Potter characteristics, but.. I can also see Weasley in him, just as well... o.O Still love it though *coos at the baby*
5th-Oct-2004 01:25 pm (UTC)
Oh! Arthur, Molly and Bill! I love it! I wish I'd thought of that. :~)
5th-Oct-2004 01:16 pm (UTC)
I like lots!

And actually, that Ginny that the person was complaining about inspired the latest fic I'm working on. So thanks!
5th-Oct-2004 01:27 pm (UTC)
Yay! Fic inspired by pic! *does happy dance*

It's very lovely and domestic and natural and pure, but that looks painful.... I don't know if I could ever do that.

Not that I've ever had any aspirations to ever be a mother... Horse mum, maybe. I go all gooey over a new born foal the way most women go gooey over a baby. I've never had a gooey baby moment in my life. To tell the truth, new borns kind of freak me out.

Doesn't change the fact that this is a wonderful moment you've captured on paper. And you've captured it beautifully.

Weeeeeeeeeeeell, it can be painful. Until your nipples toughen up, breastfeeding can be downright ugly. ;~P First 6 weeks tend to be the worst but, once you're over that, it's great. :~D

Till they grow teeth. O.o

Though I have no personal experience with breastfeeding (yet), this scenario is very familiar. My niece would do the same thing, all the way down to kicking anyone who came too close. She took especial delight in beating her father's face out of the way!

It's beautiful. A very wonderful, domestic scene, and so sweet, especially the cheeky grin on the baby's face. I love the name of the pic too!

BTW, I too thought it was Arthur, Molly and one of the kids. Her face reminded me of "It's a Girl." I didn't get Potter family at all...
7th-Oct-2004 05:47 am (UTC)
It could easily be Arthur&Molly. :~D Mayhap I'll change it to that if and when I ever finish it.
Glad you liked it though. :~)

I've been babysitting my 10-month-old niece quite a lot lately, and I swear you have the baby face exactly perfectly right, with personality and everything. Er, not that I see my niece in quite that position... *g*

Such talent, Kate!
7th-Oct-2004 05:45 am (UTC)
heeeeeeeeeeeee! Thanks, Myf! :~)

Oh. This is so lovely. SO lovely. Gads it brings back happy memories of the days when I nursed my own son. It could also be an illustration of one of my own fics, which features breastfeeding!Lily with James looking on. *happy sigh* I love it. :-)

It hit a chord with me too. I was surprised how much.
Glad to hear you enjoyed it too! :~)
7th-Oct-2004 06:01 am (UTC)
Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it though. :~)

Hello! Here from hp_art_daily. This picture is so sweet and cute! I love pictures of women breastfeeding. I think it is one of the most beautiful things in the world. I had no idea babies were nipple tweakers, though. I learned something new!
8th-Oct-2004 04:24 am (UTC)
Heheh. Nipple tweakers, nipple twisters, nipple BITERS. ;~) They are very possessive of what they regard as THEIRS. :~D Glad you enjoyed the pic.

I love this so much! It makes me miss the days when my little girl was tiny and could be contained on my lap. Not anymore. :))

I want to see this as Lily/James/Harry because I always like to think of Harry being really, really loved as a baby - and not that he could really remember it, but it's still there.

(any time someone writes a fic with wizard babies being bottlefed it drives me nuts. It seems a really Muggle thing to do - I'm not bashing anyone who does it irl, but it just doesn't seem soemthing that a witch would do.)
22nd-Oct-2004 05:45 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'm so glad you liked it and could relate to it. I like to see it as Lily and James for the same reasons as you. :~)
