    Default officially nursing a 4yo!

    My DD tunred 4 yesterday, and while the nursing is much les frequent and much less in duration, she stil nurses a few times a day. I am also due with #4 very shortly, so I dont even think I have much milk, though she says its in there!

    NEVER in a MILLION years would I have imagined nursing a 4yo, but its something she still asks for, mostly when she wakes and before bed.

    Its a completely different relationship as she has gotten older, and I am not sure how it will end, but for now we are both still in the groove!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY my baby girl who is now a 4yo almost big sister!
    Mommy of 4,

    Well done, mama- even though you're not done!
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    I am wondering if she will continue after baby is here (next week...lol) but I am guessing she will! Should be interesting for sure!
