Re: WE DID IT! 1 year of exclusive breast milk
I think you have the right idea about pump weaning. Drop a session, pump or hand express for comfort, and when you're ready, drop another session. The only caveat I have is about timing. I think you might want to wait a few weeks before you start dropping sessions. Your babies will be a year old and they'll be ready to have cow's milk, but that doesn't mean they will like it or drink it. Continuing to pump past the 1 year mark might be your insurance policy as they get used to cow's milk.
If they hate cow's milk, remember that cheese and yogurt are excellent sources of dairy and can be used in place of milk.
