    Susan, you have nothing to regret. You have a beautiful, healthy baby that you have nourished by the best means available to him. Celebrate that!

    Now with your new farm you can concentrate on creating a flourishing a wonderful family home!

    You grew 4 boys. You should be beaming with pride. And despite needing to pump for Gavin your body still gave him everything he needed. Change is hard but everything you have to look forward to is just as important and great. You did it!

    Congratulations! You are an amazing mom. 18months is a great accomplishment. It sounds like the perfect time for both of you.

    Wow Susan, what an amazing thing you've done!!

    Lots of hugs as you transition into your new norm (though sounds like the farm will be keeping you plenty busy!!).

    Thanks for sharing such a feat!

    Honestly, I feel like I got my life back. I had to get up to go to work this morning, and that extra hour of sleep after a very long day of moving was terrific. I've loved going to bed and just going to bed, not having to stay up for an hour to pump.

    I packed my pump. It's in the hall closet at the new house. I haven't once felt like I made a mistake or wish I hadn't quit. It was time.

    That's awesome Susan!

    ETA: Now if you want to, you can stay up that extra hour and sew!

    Once I unpack all the sewing stuff. It's insane how much stuff I have. But I will have my own sewing room!
