    Unhappy And we're done

    I can't believe how sad I am!
    I knew this was going to happen, I just had a feeling. I kind of wanted it to happen, but now that it has I feel guilty.
    I was away from Bennett for 4 days last week, and in coming back home he hasn't nursed. I wish our last session was more "special" I didn't even get to cuddle and nurse him one last time like I dreamt of doing.
    He asked once in the night time, just rubbed his head on me and said "nee" (his word) so sleepy, he just rolled over and went back to sleep. That's when I lost it and realized I miss it!
    I think I'm so sad b/c he is my last baby. We made it 21 months, which is the exact amount of time DS1 nursed too! My goal was 2 years, so we came pretty close.
    And today, he went pee on the potty. He's making all these steps into "big boy-hood" and mamas not ready.
    He is the sweetest boy, he loves to cuddle and give hugs and kisses. He is also the busiest, most fearless baby I have ever met! He makes me laugh, he makes me cry, he makes me a better mom. I love being Cooper and Bennett's mom and I'm so proud of all of us for making breastfeeding a wonderful part of our lives.
    Thank you ladies for helping me along the way, for being there for me the past 4 years. If it weren't for breastfeeding, I never would have met all of you, both IRL and online. Thanks for walking with us on this journey
