I can't believe it's been a week since DD asked for milk! She last nursed on our trip to the apple orchard last Friday. It was one of the rare occasions in the past year+ that I've nursed her in public, but she was out of sorts and really said she really needed milk, so I sat behind a hay bale . She's mentioned milk in the past week (for other babies), and each time I thought it would lead to her asking for milk, but nope.
Yesterday she told me she couldn't wait to have a baby of her own. When I asked her what she would do with it, she said, "I'll carry it around all the time. Except when it's hungry, then you can give it mama milk." Funny! She's such a literal child that she never nurses her babies and animals because she knows she doesn't make milk yet. She even tells me that she's not the mama to her babies, I am, because I make the milk .
Today we were getting ready to get in the tub and she came up and kissed my boob. I thought for sure she was going to try to latch on, but she just looked up at me and smiled and then gave it big hug .
I'm not sure if this is it or not, but this is by FAR the longest she's ever gone without nursing. I've not mustered up the strength to actually ask her if she's done . Just last month she said she'd nurse until she was 5 or 14 . I can't believe it's been 3 years and 9 months .
