Its been so long since I've seen pictures of either of you! :love:love She is the spitting image of her mama--stunning!
I have a stomach bug today, and the kids and I laid down for a nap. When we woke up, I couldn't get out of bed for fear of losing my stomach contents, so both of them were happy to nurse. Haylee looked up and said, "There isn't any milk." I told her that it was because I was sick and couldn't make any more. She replied, "I can help you make more. I'm a good pumper, Mom." :lol
poor baby girl, glad she is feeling better. And I love that is your mini me!
And I love the 2nd picture. You look so wholesome. So no hooker in that picture at all. So all Mama. If you had on a Old school Guinea Sax Dress you could be Laura Ingalls in that picture.
I was just thinking about you and how you flaked on writing me that weaning story. That I feel like I need. I am running short on inspiring stories of what to expect since Awnja never logged back in after the upgrade. :cry:cry
And now this. I have ambivilence. I am pleased almost to tears to see the two of you doing it. And yet, if you can't stop, can't bare it, are willing to start up after not really doing it for months, how will I ever quit????
That's just it, it's not that I can't... but I no longer feel the need to make it a "This is the last time" end all to be all moment. We're changing. She climbed in bed this morning and was all about some boob and I said, "Nope. Remember, last week you were sick and you needed milk, and my body made some because we were all snuggled up all week. Now, you're all better, and yuo don't need it, baby."
She was not thrilled but she understood me. So, now we're back to "holding the boobs" again. And I can stomach that for now. It will all be over soon enough. :rolleyes: And then I'll miss it. :happytears
KA that's a nice balance mama. There when she needs it.
Shelly--I'm in the same boat as you--I can't bring myself to fullon wean but I'm ready for her to be done on her own. And I would love for it to drop back to twice a day, but it seems when we get there it starts all over with her wanting to nurse all the dang time. sigh.
